What if you had the power to judge how successful your relationship will be? What if you were able to tell the future of your relationship just some weeks or months after being with your partner?
It’s actually possible to tell the future of your relationship to some extent, if you ask yourself the right questions.
After the initial frenzy and emotion that comes with a new relationship, these questions will tell you more about the success of your relationship.
1. CAN YOU BOTH COMPROMISE?
The ability or inability to compromise and find common grounds can tell a lot about a couple. If you both compromise when involved in difficult situations, then such a relationship will be a successful. But a relationship where partners find it difficult to find common grounds will always be rocky.
2. DO YOU SPEAK THE SAME LOVE LANGUAGE?
Do you share similar goals? Do you both want the same thing from the relationship? Are you both truly in love with each other? Are you two committed to making the relationship work? If the answers are yes, then a lot of positive things can be said about the relationship. But if the answers are no, or only one partner is really committed to making the relationship work, then such a relationship is doomed to fail.
3. DO YOU FIND STRENGTH IN EACH OTHER’S WEAKNESSES?
Everyone has a weakness, and the way partners’ react to each other’s weaknesses can go a long way to determine how successful or unsuccessful the relationship will be.
4. ARE YOU BOTH SUPPORTIVE OF EACH OTHER?
How much do you learn from each other? How much do you inspire each other to be better? How much help do you offer each other when in need? Supportive couples stand the test of time, but couples who don’t support each other, fade off in no time.
5. HOW WELL DO YOU HANDLE MISUNDERSTANDING?
The arguments will surely surface, the misunderstanding and differences will come, but that doesn’t really matter. What matters most is how they are handled. Couples who handle their differences well will have a happy relationship, and couples who don’t, will have a relationship filled with frictions and tensions.
6. ARE YOU KIND TO EACH OTHER?
How kind are you to each other? How much support do you offer each other? How much care do you show to each other. A lot of positive things can be said about couples who are kind and generous to each other.
7. WHAT’S THE TOLERANCE LEVEL IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP?
How much can you tolerate each other? Tolerance is a keyword when it comes to defining how successful a relationship will be.
Answering these questions correctly can tell you all you need to know about your relationship, and if that relationship can stand the test of time.
