3 Things That Are Most Important In a Relationship

Our relationships are some of the most challenging and rewarding aspects of life. Finding someone you want to share your life with is a beautiful thing. Falling in love feels magical.

In fact, falling in love has real health benefits and has an impact on our bodies and our minds. But contrary to popular belief, love is not all you need. Relationships take a lot more than love to keep them going and love alone won’t keep a couple together.

Successful relationships take a lot of work to keep both people happy and healthy. Read on for 3 things more important than love that you need to know to make your relationship work!


One of the most important parts of a relationship is to trust one another completely. You have to be able to trust that they won’t stray and you trust them with your feelings.

You have to trust each other enough to be vulnerable on an emotional and physical level, too. A trusting relationship isn’t built overnight though, it takes time to grow.

If you’re at the beginning of a relationship and the trust isn’t all there, give it time to grow. But if you’re in a long-term relationship and still don’t trust your partner, it’s not a good sign.


Communication, communication, communication. This is one of the most important aspects of a relationship, but so many couples struggle with it.

There are many things in a relationship you can solve with effective communication. You need it to set boundaries, to solve problems, express feelings, and more.

There are some aspects of a relationship that some people can find hard to talk about, like sex for example. But proper communication allows you to identify problems and come up with solutions.

Hugs (Physical Touch)

It’s no secret that physical touch is something humans need in order to not only survive but to communicate non-verbally with one another. When it comes to relationships, physical touch is at the forefront of how we say ‘I love you’ without actually speaking.

Hugging is an absolute must and doing this daily practice can bring a myriad of benefits not just for your relationship but for yourself too.

For example, hugging can help alleviate pain in many ways, whether it be physical, mental or emotional pain you are suffering.
