Houston Relationship Therapist: Essential Skills for a Lasting Marriage

No two relationships are the same. You and your partner approach things differently than your parents, than your partner’s parents, than your best friends, and so on and so on.

Despite this fact, though, all great relationships need to be built upon the same basic and necessary qualities and characteristics – love, trust, respect, honesty, patience, and understanding.

Houston Relationship Counselor: Compromise in Your Relationship

When looking for a partner, you know there are some key qualities that will make or break the relationship. You need to find someone you can easily talk to. Someone who gets your personality. Someone who will laugh at your jokes and make you laugh in return. Someone who “completes” you, as the cliché goes.

So you want someone who seamlessly fits into your life and you into theirs. However, you don’t want your partner to be your identical twin in everything. That would be boring. The idea is that together, you enhance and enrich each other to become a complete entity. More
