A healthy relationship may be judged by how you and your significant other deal with the major areas in any relationship.
Are you listening? Yelling, silent treatment, saying what you mean, being understood.
Are you on the same page with major purchases, savings, etc. Are job issues straining your relationship?
Issues of frequency, satisfaction and healthy self-images.
