there are lots of ways to tell if you're really into a healthy relationship. the clues would be really obvious. one if you're happy with the one that you consider as your significant other. if you and your partner are treating each other well, then both of you are still. the respect and trust should still be there. Does your partner listen when you say you're not comfortable doing something and then back off right away? Respect in a relationship means that each person values who the other is and understands — and would never challenge — the other person's boundaries. this is very important. i really felt sad hearing stories about split ups, divorce and annulment. why not making it to the extent of separating ways when both of you has still the capacity to fix it. for me, there's only one thing that can make me decide to go away. it's when physical assaults happen as well the emotional maltreatment. how about you?are you really in a healthy relationship?

good for you. you are lucky that your significant other takes a lot of effort for the relationship to linger.healthy relationships are fun. it makes you feel good about yourself. it also makes one young and at least free from stress of family troubles.congratulations. not all couples are that fortunate enough.

One can never guaranty the actions of another. Love, respect and communication are important. Life is about learning and growing as people. Your spouse and you teach each other on the road of life. This does take some drama. I always say if there is never any drama, you probably have the wrong spouse. Know that a relationship takes work. Few things worth while in life come easy. Don't give up so easily. Love unconditionally for that is the hardest to let go of.

i dont think i know that im in a healthy relationship as me and my other half both trust each other were there for the other when they need support. If were not comfortable the other knows and respects that and stops wat there doing. i know wat your saying about physical assaults and sometimes it can be even more serious when a guy forces himself on someone. But in those cases its obvious that there is no respect and that they shouldnt have been together in the first place.
