Have you found your love in someone? Are you planning to spend your life with the person, but still not sure if the relationship will survive in the long run? In the fast paced life and ever growing demands of the human nature, relationships are short lived and difficult to manage. Who doesn’t want a partner who can support us in every field of life? A successful relationship requires just two individuals and a little bit of understanding. When our current status changes from ‘Single’ to ‘Committed’, friends keep on asking regarding the authenticity, and the only thing that runs in our mind is all about keeping our partners happy in the initial stage of love. Gradually as the time moves on, the spark which was seen in the fledgling stage of the love story starts fading. Now it is a proven fact that love doesn’t remain the same after years, but surely it is the responsibility of every individual to keep few things in mind that will help maintain that spark.
A long lasting relation means ending up in marriage in general terms. So if you are already in love and still in dilemma, it is always better to keep certain things in mind so that you don’t end up in a painful break up. Here are few steps that would help you know about the longevity of a relationship.
- YOU ALWAYS HAVE TIME FOR YOUR PARTNER, NO MATTER WHAT
If your partner always has time for you irrespective of the work, then there is a way to go. You can see a potential life partner in that person.
- BOTH OF YOU ARE BATCH MATES
If both you and your partner are of same age, then there is a matter to ponder over. Researches show that there are very few couples of the same age who sustain. That is, for a healthy relationship, an age gap is quintessential. As the maturity level of a woman is 5 years more than that of a man, generally in a relationship it is essential that the guy is few years elder than the girl. But the difference must not exceed 7 years.
- TAKE A FORMER RELATIONSHIP AS A CAUTIONARY
Generally, we don’t feel comfortable speaking about our ex. But in certain cases, this works as a great benefit. If the erstwhile relation of your partner was long lasting, then there are chances that yours might also work longer.
- GROW THAT INTIMACY
Sexual compatibility is a must in every relationship, after all the first stage of love came from bodily attractions. So no one can deny the fact that everyone seeks sexual satisfaction and if you are sexually content with your partner, then your relationship has chance to grow.
- GOOD FRIENDS EARLIER?
Successful relationship arises from friendship. While ex lovers can never be the best of friends, we have already seen many examples of friendships turning into fairy tales. A friend understands you and therefore you must try to make your partner a good friend first.
- A FUTURE, TOGETHER OR SEPARATE
Try to extract things from your partner whether he has included your role in his future plans. There is no use in screaming out loud if he has not. Instead try to focus on his wordings and intentions.
- HAVING SUPPORT FROM FAMILY AND PALS
Difficulties in a relationship arise in a hostile environment. If your family and friends support you, then your relationship has a long term implementation. A healthy relationship marks its beginning with the support of close people, isn’t it?
- HAVE A COMMON OPINION
It is foolish to think that your partner should always agree upon those things which you say. People’s thinking varies and so does the opinions. Try to reach to a common point, if not exactly at the same points.
- A LOVEY-DOVEY COUPLE
This is the ultimate requirement for a successful and long lasting relationship. You need to respect and love each other. As long as love persists, ego clashes will diminish and understanding will grow.
If these few points are kept in mind, then you can get rid of any possible hazes that might be there in your mind before taking your relationship to the next higher level. Happy Loving!
