Have you ever seen or been a part of a terrible relationship?

#2 They define what makes a relationship great. How would you define a happy and healthy relationship? If you’ve never thought about it, now is the time to define what it would take for you to consider your relationship “great.”
#3 Carefree timelessness. When was the last time you spend an afternoon, without an agenda, with the most important person in your life?
#4 Hopes and dreams. Knowing the dreams of the people you love and helping them fulfill those dreams brings indescribable energy and enthusiasm to your relationships.

#7 They don’t give up, no matter what.
