Good relationships don’t just happen.

A healthy relationship takes time, patience and two people who truly want to be together. There is no guarantee that a couple will never have arguments, differences or trust issues. But there is a guarantee that all relationships will go through hell at some point of time. But real ones get through it.

There comes a time in every relationship when you’ll realize that love just isn’t enough.

So utmost care has to be taken while choosing a life partner. “Single” and “married” are just titles. Your heart determines your true relationship status. So find someone who will change your life and not just your relationship status. The best thing in life is finding someone who knows all of our flaws and mistakes and weaknesses and still wants to grow old with us. And the best feeling in the world is knowing that you actually mean something to someone.

I am not perfect. You are not perfect. We are perfect together.

Have you seen couples fighting like Tom and Jerry? We should be worried when they stop fighting because there is nothing left for them to fight for. Does this mean, we should live a life filled with conflict and chaos?

Once married, be selective in your battles. Sometimes peace is better than being right.  Assumptions are the termites of a relationship and they slowly corrode the bond if there is no mutual trust. This trust comes only as a result of open communication.

Without communication, there is no relationship.
without respect, there is no love.
Without hope of a happy future, there is no reason to continue.

Every relationship – be it friendship or marriage, needs time and effort. Don’t take people for granted. No matter how much they love you, people get tired eventually. It is a sad thing when a person realizes that they were not loved as much as they loved the other person. People will forget what you said and did but they will remember how you made them feel.

Can a marriage get overcrowded?

Two very nice people who are madly in love with each can still have a miserable marriage if they don’t have the opportunity to nurture and enjoy each others’ company. Marriages can get overcrowded and suffocating if others are allowed to meddle. Marriage is for adults and it is the responsibility of those in it to find time for each other and establish boundaries with their respective families.

Ever fallen in love with someone you shouldn’t have fallen in love with?

Are all marriages happy? Some people are not meant to be together. Before evaluating the 5Cs of the diamond that will adorn your finger, evaluate if partner truly understands the 3 Cs of a healthy relationship – communication, compromise and commitment.
