11 Things That Are More Important Than Love & Money In A Relationship, According to Study

10. Communication

Communication is the gasoline in love’s engine. I don’t really think there can be real, lasting love without good communication. You need communication in a relationshipto set boundaries, express your love, fix problems, express your needs, and even to have good sεχ. Communication is basically everything. So if you’re with someone you can’t communicate with, or don’t communicate well with, you have to be able to fix that, or no amount of love will give you a happy, healthy relationship.

11. Wanting To Be Together

Sometimes the heart is totally complicated. You can love someone, but not want to be with them, or not want to be with them right now. You might have other goals, you might feel emotionally unstable, or you might just not be ready to make a commitment. Timing is important, here, too. You have to want to be in a relationship. And you’re allowed to want anything you want. Even if that includes not being in a relationship with the person you love.

All relationships are different, and a lot of problems are solvabe. But love isn’t the only ingredient, or even (arguably) the most important ingredient, in a healthy relationship.
