I have these list of things that we need for growth and development of our relationship. They were mostly based on my experienced and observation. And everything is along with " CONSTANT COMMUNICATION" with you partner. 1.) True Love - Love your partner unconditionally. 2.) Trust - You need to trust each other, otherwise you will be always fighting which is not good indication of a happy relationship. 3.) Faithfulness - You need to be faithful even your partner's eyes is not staring at you. 4.) Commitment - Commitment will blanket and tied your relationship. If you committed with each other she/he the only one you love you can fight temptation. 5.)Patient and Perseverance - You need to be patient in every circumstances you might encounter. In this part, you need to disregard your temper. 6.) Forgiveness - Learn to forgive if one of you commit a mistake. It is always a good feeling if you are forgiven. 7.) Learn to say " Sorry" - Sometimes, sorry is a hard word to say. But it is important in a relationship. 8.) Loyalty - Being loyal is always having an award. It means your heart is only for your beloved and partner. Not to the sexy woman that you saw in a day or a macho man that you saw in a TV. 9.) Appreciation - Appreciation is FREE. You need to appreciate your partner on his/her every accomplishment. It makes him/her work harder for both of you. 10.) Acknowledge God as the center Foundation - Above all, put / include God in every details of your relationship. The relationship will be stronger if it is founded with God. Praying together is another plus for a relationship.
