How to maintain a healthy relationship with your partner.
A lot of people think that once they find the person they want to spend time with is the last stop, but no – to maintain a good and healthy relationship you ought to be on the same level (financial, intellectual, emotional). Here are several points that can help you answer your questions whether your significant other is the right one for you.
1 Personal space
Yes, couples love spending time together – the more the better; but even for madly in love couples it is healthy to have a life apart from the relationship. So going out with your friends separately, and actually maintaining good social life out of your relationship is healthy and good for both of you.
2 Healthy physical relationship
It is extremely important that your physical relationship with your partner is as satisfying just as your emotional relationship. An unhealthy and non-satisfying physical relationship will most certainly affect and strain your relationship with your partner despite all attempts otherwise. It might not seem to matter as much in the beginning but when one of the partners isn’t happy with the physical part of the relationship, if most definitely would affect the emotional part of it.
Do you both want to travel the world or buy a small house in the mountains? If yes then there is no doubt you are on the same level. No matter how often have you heard that opposites attracts, in fact in reality the couples who share interests and goals are more likely to succeed.
4 Similar opinions and interests
Does your partner love what you most oppose of? A difference in opinions is common and no two people can always share the same perspective about something but if your opinions are two different or exactly opposite then it might be some trouble. It is very well known that ‘Opposite poles attract each other’ but they cannot practically stay together in harmony for a long time. It is only possible to spend your life with someone if you two have common interests, habits and opinions to a good extent.
You might have most things in common and a dear attachment to each other but you still don’t know why you have recently started fighting so often on insensible reasons. It can be that what might once have been an attractive thing about your partner is now getting on your nerves. If once you were flattered when your partner was jealous and slightly possessive and wanted to keep you all to himself/herself, with time it may get on your nerves and actually can kill your relationship? There are some things you can always find out with time and so time is the best compatibility test. If you could still, after a long while, bear with your partner’s idiosyncrasies and he/she with yours then nothing can certainly come in your way.
Everyday life can be stressful and full with situations that would drain your energy out, but if you and your partner can make each other laugh then you definitely share a great degree of compatibility. It is very important to share a similar sense of humor with your better halves because one smile on his/her jokes can make up for all the ruins in the past and if you are certain that no matter what their jokes and innocence will always make you laugh then you can convince yourself that he/she might be the one for you.
Let’s start with the small things – Does your and your partner’s idea about vacation is the same? If your lifestyle is much different then I fit will be very hard for your to keep your relationship on the same level. It is necessary to have some similarity in the kind of lifestyle you have or rather the one you wish to have. If there is a never ending dispute over whether to buy a new car from the extra money you have or which hotel to stay in while traveling then you might want to ensure that you and your partner are not always on the opposite sides of the coin before taking your relationship very seriously.
