Have you ever wondered what it feels like to be in a successful relationship? Or, maybe, you think you’re already in a healthy relationship, and you just want to make sure you’re right. Defining strict rules for what constitutes a successful relationship is impossible, because everyone is different, but some feelings are very good indicators. Here are ten of those feelings that partners in successful relationships say they have. Read on and see if you agree!
Happiness should be at the number one spot on this list. In a good relationship, two people complement each other and they are both happy in the relationship. Simply put, the feeling is that there is simply no reason to be with anyone else.
Love and happiness in itself is not enough, you also need mutual respect in a successful relationship. Decisions should be together on both sides of an argument heard, and one individual should not have the upper hand over the other.
Feel you can talk
Talking is an essential part of a relationship and you should feel that you can talk to your partner about anything. There should be no taking things for granted in a successful partnership, it should be a completely honest and open one; and people in a successful partnership are not afraid to talk about their problems.
For richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, is what marriage vows say about this. Unconditional love does not mean, an unhealthy one-sided infatuation, but it does mean something loving through both good times, and bad.
Trust is essential in a successful relationship, and a lack of it can cause many problems. People in healthy relationships feel they can trust their partners one hundred percent, and that means trusting their judgment, their intentions, and their fidelity.
