Healthy relationships are built on trust, respect, and understanding. Communication is key - talk openly and honestly with your partner. It's important to take care of yourself and your partner.
What is a Healthy Relationship?
Interdependence: the mutual reliance between two or more people, groups, or things. Boundaries: rules and limits that help define relationships and outline expectations for behavior. Communication: the exchange of thoughts, messages, or information, as by speech, visuals, signals, writing, or behavior.
Studies show that couples who often talk about relationships are more likely to be satisfied with their relationship. When in a happy relationship, people tend to feel more secure in their daily lives. Having a strong support system from a partner can help people recover from trauma faster than those who don't have such support.
