What is a Healthy Relationship?
 
Lewis and Gossett (1999) define eight essential characteristics of a healthy relationship:
 
  • Both partners participate in the definition of the relationship.
 
  • There is a strong bond characterized by levels of both closeness and autonomy.
 
  • Each individual in the relationship is interested in each other's thoughts and feelings.
 
  • The expression of feelings is encouraged.
 
  • The inevitable conflicts that do occur do not escalate or lead to despair.
 
  • Problem-solving skills are well developed.
 
  • Most basic values are shared.
 
  • The ability to deal with change and stress is well developed.
