Who doesn’t want their relationship to last forever? It takes hard work, though, for both of you to stay together. It’s not that easy. Research says 40-50% of marriages end up in divorce, while 80% of them still believe in “’til death do us part.” But how could you tell if a couple is for keeps? Here are 8 signs:
- You Have Fun Together
Fun comes when couples are already comfortable with each other. So take it as a good sign if you enjoy each other’s company even without doing anything intentionally romantic.
- You Support Each Other
A support system is extremely important for a person, especially coming from a partner. One of the purposes of being with someone is to have a shoulder to lean on when time calls for it.
- Your partner’s friends are your friends
According to studies, partners who are friends with their partner’s friends are a sign of a happy couple. So make sure you could hang out with both parties to find out if you’re with the right person.
- You Kiss A Lot
Kissing is the most obvious sign of intimacy for couples. Studies show that the more the couples kiss, the happier and more satisfied they are in a relationship.
- Making Each Other Laugh
You know you’re with the right person if he/she could be able to tickle your bones. Humor is an important aspect for a partner. It’s just about finding someone who shares the same level as yours.
- You Respect Each Other
Equal respect for one another is a crucial need for a relationship. Whether it’s their choices, ideas, work, thoughts and opinions, it’s ultimately important for a partner to be able to listen and value it without having to impose his/her own.
- You Tell Them You’re Grateful
Being openly grateful and vulnerable towards a partner is the best indication that a relationship is healthy. Tell your partner you are thankful for having him/her and your relationship will surely last.
- You Spoon When You Sleep
According to studies, couples who sleep closely – specifically less than an inch apart – are more likely to be happy than those who sleep away from each other. You can’t help but snuggle with your partner when you’re in love.
