Time is the most essential element of a healthy relationship. When we say this, we mean that relationships are not working without the time invested in them. Without time, it is simply never going to happen. The conclusion is that every relationship requires quality time together with your partner. This quality time is not happening when there is no quantity.

Commitment/Love

In the root of all things, love can be described as a decision to commit yourself to another person. As we said in the previous part of our article, it is much more than feelings we can see in romantic novels, tv shows, or movies. Also, the nature of feelings is that they come and go. Let’s face it, nothing lasts forever. However, when you make a decision to commit yourself to your loved one. This is a fine line that separates healthy marriages from ones that are not lasting for too long. Naturally, there are going to be so many ups and downs in life but staying committed is the thing that will make the difference.

Having healthy communication with your partner is going to do wonders. Naturally, partners are discussing grocery lists, utility bills, and kid’s schedules, but it needs to be much more than that. Another part of the communication needs to be fears, dreams, hopes, and anxieties. Listening to your partner is another big part of healthy communication. For example, you can remember what your partner likes and you can give him a gift, for anniversary for instance. If you are interested in taking a look at some of these, click here.

Faithfulness

Staying faithful in marriage, especially sexual faithfulness, even though it doesn’t include only bodies of the two partners. It’s much more than that. Furthermore, it includes the soul, mind, eyes, and heart. There are times when someone devotes its mind to sexual fantasies about another person, there is a high risk that sexual faithfulness is going to be sacrificed. Also, when we are offering those kinds of moments to another person, you are sacrificing sexual faithless to your partner. You should always keep your sexuality to your partner and for him alone. This requires a lot of self-discipline but believe us, the fruits of this sacrifice will be larger than anything.

Humility

All people in the world have their own, let’s say, set of weaknesses. Believe us, spending time with someone, especially if you are in a relationship with that person, will reveal all their faults pretty quickly. We truly believe that admitting that you are not perfect is the most essential building block for every healthy marriage you can think of. Also, you need to prepare that you will, sometimes, ask for forgiveness. If you are acting superior over your partner, your relationship will result in resentment and will prevent your relationship from having a bright future. If you have a hard time accepting this, you can do a simple practice. For example, you can grab a pencil and write a few things your partner does better than you.

Trust and Honesty

Trust and honesty are, after time, the main element for everything that you can find in a successful marriage. Moreover, this is, differently from other entries on our list, is closely related to time. Because honesty and trust need time in order to work between two persons.

This really takes time, so you need to start now. In case you need to rebuild honesty and trust in a broken relationship, you are going to need to invest much more time to make it work. So, start now, before it’s too late.
