15 Signs of a Healthy Marriage

Mar. 26, 2015 Freddie Scott II

Something amazing happens in relationships when you remind yourself of why you fell in love in the first place, and as a result focus on only doing things that will keep your relationship strong and healthy.

Notice I said healthy. You may think your relationship is fine just the way it is. Maybe you feel as thought the challenges that you face are normal in relationships. Well, there is a difference between normal, and healthy. Understanding what is healthy for a relationship is vitally important to make sure that both you and the one you love experience the love, support, and trust that every loving relationship should exhibit.

Here are 15 signs of a healthy marriage:

  1. Responsibility for Personal Needs. Partner’s recognize that they are ultimately responsible for meeting their own needs and they do their best to help each other meet those needs.

  2. Respectful Communication. Couples have open and honest communication. They communicate daily when possible.
  3. Relationship is a Priority. Couples continue nourishing their relationship. They consistently create time for the two of them.
  4. Realistic Expectations. Couples in healthy relationships see each other as whole people, with strengths and flaws. They love each other in spite of their weaknesses.
