8 Ways to Know You’re in a Healthy Relationship

3. You Connect on the Deep Stuff

Small variations in habits, likes and personalities are usually not a bad thing.

However, as research has shown, there are some areas couples really need to connect on in order to have a rich and lasting relationship.

You and your partner have to be able to agree and dialogue about the big stuff that affects your daily thinking and view of the world. This includes faith, relationships with family and communication.

Many people get into and even stay in relationships because they fall in love with surface stuff like affection and the fun they have together. But these things can only take you so far.

The best relationships have depth to them, where the couple can practice faith together and communicate meaningfully.
