5 Essentials of a Healthy Relationship

5 essentials to a healthy relationship

Trust

Without trust in a relationship, there is no happiness. When partners don't trust each other, it causes jealousy and accusations. 

In healthy relationships, partners can spend time with friends and family without their spouse getting jealous or feeling insecure. 

One of the essentials of a healthy relationship is being able to trust one another completely, no matter what situation you're in. Also, not feeling insecure about whether your spouse is cheating.

Compromise

This is a must-have for every relationship. Having healthy boundaries is fine too. But being able to compromise while keeping both happy is one of the essentials to building a strong and long-lasting relationship. 

You and your husband need to learn to meet each other halfway when certain situations arise or when it comes to major decisions.

Communication

One of the most important factors to building a healthy relationship is to have solid communication skills. Without this, it can lead to disagreements and unnecessary problems. 

Being able to confide in each other openly without holding back any feelings also falls under good communication skills. 

By being able to communicate effectively, you'll find that there are fewer issues in your relationship.

Intimacy 

Maintaining a physical connection with your spouse is essential to building a healthy relationship. 

Being able to express physical desires, likes and dislikes is also an important factor. Intimacy also goes beyond sex. There are also little acts of physical affection that couples can display towards one another. Such as hugging, cuddling, kissing, holding hands in public, etc.

Solving disagreements and conflict

When problems go on unresolved and when issues begin to escalate, that's when you know you're in an unhealthy relationship. 

Disagreements and conflict do arise and that's perfectly normal but it's how you both as a couple work through them and come together to solve it at the earliest, rather than avoiding the problems at hand.
