Ways to know that you are in long lasting relationship

Ways to know that you are in long lasting relationship

Primarily, it is  important to understand a common relationship myth that says relationships are easy. That is simply not true. The grass always looks greener in other people’s lives, because few people share the truth of the amount of work that goes into relationships (hence why 50% of marriages end in divorce). Relationships — even the best relationships in the world — require constant attention, nurturing, and work. If you can understand and accept the need for constant attention and work in your relationship, you’re started in the right direction.

Given are some of the pointers to understand that you are part of long lasting relationship:

Always communicate

Relationships live and die not by the sword, but by the amount of discussion. If two people can’t find a way to openly and honestly communicate their needs and feelings to one another, the relationship doesn’t stand much of a chance long-term. Couples must find a way to communicate regularly, openly, and directly to end any kind of misunderstandings.

Less argument

After marriage or when two people move in together, couples tend to discover pretty much the same thing no matter who they are – that they are two different people and living together is harder than anyone ever told them. Love conquers a lot of things, but it is no match for living day-in and day-out with another human being and needs something more.

More compromise

Relationships are about not only taking, but also giving. If you find yourself not giving very much, or feeling resentful of how much you give and how little you receive back, you may be in an unequal relationship where one side is taking more than they are giving. Any kind of relationship needs full commitment from both the partners to make it a successful one.

Respect exists

In healthy relationships, there is a foundation of respect between the partners. It shows up in every interaction and every conversation. It’s palpable and enduring. Respect is the glue that keeps the partnership alive and well.  Respect is when we esteem and honor the other person’s very being — their inner qualities and rights as a human being.
