About This Article
The most important ingredient of a lasting relationship is respect. This means that you understand the value of what that person gives you, that you know what your life would look like without them, and that you can verbalize it. The other ingredient couples need is each partner having a life outside of their relationship. In order to thrive in a committed partnership, a person has to be confident and feel empowered and strong as an individual.
