Some romantic relationships go more smoothly than others. Many couples have similar personalities and have little trouble getting along with or integrating into one another’s life. Other relationships begin hot and then cool down.
It is true that many couples have relationship obstacles, such as work-related stresses, interpersonal conflict, and geographic incompatibility. However, although some couples manage relationship hiccups amicably, for others, even slight friction may throw a relationship off course to the point that it is challenging to get back on course.
It seems sense that strong partnerships require both parties to be prepared to put their partners’ needs above their own. Probably easier said than done, but when we think of the advantages of relational kindness, the effort is well worth it.
Positive attitudes about their partners and their relationships are what distinguish partner-focused commitments as special. It should come as no surprise that such couples see little declines in commitment. Couples who are committed to tie the knot while being supported by a strong social network are more likely to reach their objective quickly. They’ll probably organise a grandiose wedding to accommodate the great number of their supporters who have supported them during their trip.
Partners who are focused on each other are travelling in the same direction, perhaps even moving more quickly, but they are unquestionably travelling in the same general direction. Any relationship, especially one that is long-term, will benefit and find appeal in other-focused altruism.
