#6. Couples fight all the time. It’s unavoidable, but you also know how to let things go.
It’s a great sign of a healthy relationship when you can be flexible enough to move beyond the anger, let things go, and make up because it shows you’re both easy going and loving towards each other.
#7. You love your partner for who they are, and not what you want them to be.
You love your significant other for who they were the moment you met them and you never hope, dream, or try to change them, because thinking you can mold someone into an unrealistic image is the wrong way to go.
#8. You show love every single day, not just on Valentine’s Day or your anniversary.
A great sign of a healthy relationship is based on creative intimacy, connection, and most importantly, positive expression of love through words, gestures, and acts every day.
#9. Yes, you fight, but then you can’t wait to make up so you can be in each other’s arms again.
We’re all going to have those moments where we’re going to disagree with each other. That’s just life. But when you’re willing to put the anger aside and forgive each other to stay together, you’ve really got something there.
#10. Mutual trust and respect is essential for a healthy relationship to flourish.
If you have it, then it means you also have open communication and honest dialogues about values, goals and expectations about each other and your future together. But they also require freedom of expression with the fear of retribution as well as respect for each other’s differences.
