Are You in a Healthy Relationship?

By January 18, 2014

Follow me on:

I am delighted to see Dr. Alice Boyes's list of 50 positive characteristics of healthy relationships." These are signs that not only can help you decide if you are marrying the right person, but you can also use the list to check to see if you are being a caring and supportive spouse.
Six Examples from Dr. Boyes's List:
"2. You and your partner are playful with each other."

"5. Even when you disagree, you can acknowledge your partner makes sensible points."

"10. Your partner is enthusiastic when something "goes right" for you."

"21. You never or very rarely express contempt for your partner - roll your eyes, cuss at them, call them crazy etc."

"26. When you argue, you have a sense that your partner cares about your feelings and opinions."

"40. You're physically affectionate with each other."
