Facts:
In a healthy relationship it is acknowledged that:

  • excellent communication skills are essential;
  • feelings need to be discussed instead of withholding them, withdrawing, or projecting them onto a partner in the form of blame or accusations;
  • fulfilling intimate adult relationships are based on a realistic understanding of male-female differences and a strong desire to get along, rather than a focus on proving that you are right and the other person is wrong
