Establishing healthy romantic relationships requires you and your partner to be on the same page. The Real Health Series on Home Channel DSTV Channel 176 will be addressing this very issue with relationship expert Paula Quinsee this coming Monday 24 April 2017 at 18:00.
“A healthy romantic relationship is one where both parties are able to be open and honest with each other about their wants, feelings and needs. They have a mutual respect for each other and their relationship and are able to resolve conflict in a mature, conscious, adult manner,” says Quinsee
“The relationship is a safe, nurturing and supportive one for both the couple and family (if they have children) to thrive in. Couples understand that they will never agree on everything 100% as they are two unique individuals with different perspectives but are willing to meet each other in the middle ground and offer a win-win solution for everyone to benefit from,” adds Quinsee.Couples can let their relationship get into a routine and the risk here is that they can get into a rut then become complacent. “In other words they stop appreciating each other and start taking each other for granted. When relationships get into a rut, the connection starts to disappear and with that everything is soon to follow i.e. communication, intimacy and ultimately the relationship itself,” adds Quinsee.
