Having a similar sense of humor is also important for a strong relationship because if your partner doesn’t understand your jokes, they might consider them offensive or rude. This will eventually create issues. So, if you get each other’s jokes, it’s an added bonus and will help you a lot.

You can talk about the past without hesitating.

We often refrain from sharing our vulnerabilities with our partners because we don’t realize how they would respond to our past. So, another important sign of being in a strong and healthy relationship is that you can comfortably share your past with them. You don’t mind opening up to them.

You always listen to each other.

Being a good listener is very important for a strong relationship. If you don’t listen intently to your partner while discussing an issue, things become complicated because your partner might think you don’t take them seriously. So, make sure your partner always has your undivided attention when they are talking.

You celebrate with each other.

You always find a reason to fall in love.

You never get bored of each other because you find a new reason to love each other every day. You always keep the spark of excitement and unpredictability alive in your relationship so that you don’t fall into a pattern. Appreciating and validating each other every day is very important.

You clearly express what you want.

The fact that you can clearly express your emotional needs to your partner without any hesitation makes it certain that you are in a strong relationship. You don’t wait for your partner to read your mind and find out by themselves what you think or how you feel about something.

You know where this is going.

Most people lack strength and security in their relationships because they are not uncertain about the future. So, if you make your pattern and are on the same page regarding your expectations from this relationship and each other, it helps a lot to strengthen your foundation and improve your understanding.

You are honest with each other.

A strong and healthy relationship is always based on mutual trust and honesty. You know your pattern accepts you for who you are, and therefore, you are not afraid, to be honest with them. You can tell them everything because you don’t ever feel the need to lie about anything. 

You openly communicate your feelings.

We all know how important effective communication is in a relationship. So, if you always communicate your feelings openly to your partner and you know they will always understand and comfort you, this is a sign of a strong relationship. The more you talk effectively, the better your understanding becomes.

You always try to understand each other.

A strong relationship needs both partners to always want to understand each other. This expresses your eagerness to be with each other in this relationship and get to know each other better. The more you interact with your partner to know their preference and dislikes, the stronger your relationship becomes.

You don’t hold on to your grudges.

Yes, you have disagreements, and your partner pisses you off now and then. But the best part of your relationship is that you never hold on to an issue longer than needed. You accept your partner’s flaws and embrace them wholeheartedly. In a strong relationship, you always forgive and forget.

You embrace their imperfections.

Nobody is perfect; we all have our flaws and bad habits. Being in a strong relationship means you embrace your partner for who they are. You don’t judge or criticize them; instead, you help them understand their flaws and work on them. This is what ideal partners should always do.

You never point fingers.

A strong relationship makes you look at yourself and your partner as a unit. So even if they mess up, you never play the blame game. You consider their mistake equally as yours and try to find a solution to it peacefully. Doing this ensures you never have ugly fights.

CONCLUSION

Even if you have at least 5-10 of these factors working out well in your relationship, you need not worry about anything. Also, you cannot forcefully have a strong relationship. All you need to do is be genuine and kind, make efforts as required, and just go with the flow.
