With These 6 Signs, You Will Know If You Are In A Healthy Relationship

We know that it might be quite difficult to know when you are in a perfect relationship, particularly now that there are lots of men out there who are looking out to hurt women.

However, you can find out if you are in a healthy relationship and it does not really take much off you. Curious? We’ve got you.

If you see all these signs below, then you are in a healthy relationship:

1. You can speak your mind

Relationships thrive when couples can express themselves freely and honestly. That means no topic is off-limits, and you both feel heard. Consistent communication is vital to building a lasting life together.

2. You have your own space

Just because you’re in love doesn’t mean you have to spend every moment together. Taking time to pursue your own interests and friendships keeps your relationship fresh and gives you both the opportunity to grow as individuals even while you’re growing as a couple.

3. You disagree constructively

Disagreements are normal, so if you aren’t fighting, chances are you’re holding back. But when people in healthy relationships fight, they fight productively and fairly.

That means avoiding abusive words or putting each other down. It also means trying to understand your partner instead of trying to always prove points. And when you’re wrong? You apologize.

4. You both accept and love each other despite your flaws

Chances are your relationship won’t suddenly get better if you win a huge sum of money, have a baby, or move to your dream country. So don’t base your partnership on the hope that it will change. You recognize that neither of you is perfect, and you accept and value each other for who you are right now, not who you might become.

5. You make decisions jointly

You don’t call all the shots. Neither does your partner. From what movie to see to how many children to have, you make decisions together and listen to each other’s concerns and desires. Sure, this may mean you see ‘Wives On Strike’ on Saturday night, and on Sunday night, it’s his turn to select a movie.

6. You are happy

Healthy relationships are full of laughter and fun. This doesn’t mean you’re drunk in love every hour of the day or that he doesn’t drive you nuts sometimes, it means that your life together is mostly happy in sometimes simple ways. (Making dinner, laughing at the same things, and even finishing each others’ sentences.)
