A romantic relationship is more than physical attractiveness and connection. It goes through high and low tides, and it takes willingness and commitment to remain truthful to your partner.

Whether you’ve been together for years or a few months, there are essential steps you should take to build a stable and healthy relationship. This is to rekindle the romance in the relationship, find fulfillment, stay connected, and have lasting happiness. 

Relationships are different and unique. There are no one-size-fits-all tips, but there are common characteristics that long-lasting and healthy relationships have. 

These tips will help you spice up the relationship and make it healthy. 

  1. Acceptance 

Acceptance is the first prerequisite of a healthy relationship. You need to understand that no one is perfect. We all have weaknesses, and you need to accept your partner with their flaws unconditionally. 

It should be mutual, and both partners need to work on their weak areas. Gradually, you can both adapt to the characters of your spouse for better understanding. 

However, this does not condition you to accept mediocre, disrespect, and narcissism.  Draw the boundary and have some limitations. 

  1. Mutual Respect 

Mutual respect is one quality that cements a relationship and helps couples sail through adversity. Life can throw unexpected curveballs, but if there's respect, couples can remain in love. 

For instance, Covid-19 led to 81 million job losses in 2020. If your partner lost their job, the mutual respect should remain intact. A spouse may also fall sick or get incapacitated. 

When life throws such tragedies, maintain mutual respect towards each other. 

  1. Honesty 

 Honesty is the core foundation of a stable, healthy relationship. Trust is necessary for a relationship to thrive. Having a partner means being with someone you can trust with your heart, thoughts, and feelings. 

Come clear about any issue that might affect your relationship. Some people hide health issues from their partners due to the fear of stigmatization or being heartbroken. But being truthful can save your marriage or partnership. 

Let your partner know you have a hearing loss issue. It will enable you to communicate effectively. You may also get help from professionals who deal with hearing loss & relationships problems. 

  1. Intimacy 

Emotional and sexual intimacy is a crucial component of a healthy relationship. Every touch and hug ignites an emotional connection. It makes you feel loved, valued and helps you build your self-esteem

  1. Communication

Good communication is an essential part of a healthy relationship. It makes it effortless to deal with conflict, make decisions, and build a healthier, stronger partnership. You need to communicate clearly and precisely to avoid misunderstandings. 

No matter how well you think you know your partner, you cannot read their mind. Be clear of what you want and convey your message respectfully. Avoid instances where you can cause confusion, anger, and resentment. 

However, some topics or experiences are hard to communicate. If you're in such a situation, it would help to talk to a professional.
