5 Things You Should Definitely Ask For in Your Relationship

4. Alone Time. We have all had that friend, the one that disappears from social circles as soon as they enter a relationship. Both you and your partner need time apart, time to spend with friends or simply by yourself. Don’t become to entangled with each other that your friends combine your name, becoming a Brangelina or Bennifer.
5. Support. Sometimes when it rains, it pours. Life isn’t always the nicest person ever, so you need to be able to be each other’s support systems. Instead of taking it out on your significant other when you are having a bad day, ask for their help and love. Or, when you see the frustration brewing, be the one that offers comfort first. It’s hard to ask for help, especially in our darkest hours. Offer your hand in support before it is even asked for. And expect the same in return.
The overall theme is this… you need to have open communication for the relationship to be meaningful at the end of the day. Personally, that is one of the biggest obstacles I faced in my own marriage, opening myself up. I felt vulnerable, exposed to being hurt, so I closed myself off which made my husband feel I had closed my love off as well. Transparency about your needs and desires will only help you grow closer to your partner and blossom a beautiful, healthy relationship.
