There’s nothing like a ‘perfect’ relationship. Every relationship has its ups and downs, and it all depends on how well you and your partner handles it. For relationships to take proper shape, partners need to work on it and this sometimes means inconveniencing each other for the sake of love. This in the end should be worthwhile. Here are some things your relationship needs from you.
1. Loyalty: In relationships, loyalty isn’t an option but a priority. You need to be loyal with to your spouse by supporting them, and in how you portray them to others.
2. Time: No matter how busy you schedule may be, you must create quality time for your relationship. Stay in touch with your partner; communicate regularly. This might not be convenient, but if anyone deserves more of your time, it should be your partner.
3. Trust: Learn to trust your partner and avoid issues that make it difficult for one to trust you too. These days, not a few relationships suffer trust issues. However, learn to trust; even if in the long run you’re being betrayed, you learn a life lesson, if not, you gain a friend for life.
4. Honesty: One cannot emphasis much on how relationships shouldn’t be torn by lies and cheating. Be honest with your spouse, and remember that no matter how bad they might feel, they might feel worse if you lie to them. Also, tell them the truth about what you feel and though they might be hurt at the moment, they would appreciate what you’ve done in the long run.
5. Romance: Relationships shouldn’t be all about making it work without any enjoyment. Most of the time spent with your partner should be fun.
6. Reconciliation: Be willing to put your best in dealing with challenges in your relationship. When challenges arise don’t walk away or involve a third party. Deal calmly with challenges, learn to forgive when you are wronged, and to apologise when you are at fault.
