You’re still you
That’s right. You haven’t morphed into a version of your former self, hiding your real likes and dislikes in favour of someone else’s. You still feel comfortable being yourself – the good and the not so good.
You actually enjoy the person’s company and you’ve grown to become good friends. You can talk about a whole host of things, share interests or at least appreciate the others’ interests. Bottom-line you simply enjoy each other’s company and your downtime is effortless.
You understand each other on the big ticket items
We mean, you’ve had the talks around money, kids and values and your perspectives match up. Studies show that when a couple split, these are the main reasons why so make sure you’ve had real conversations about these issues and continue to on a regular basis.
You feel supported
What if you want to go back to school one day? Perhaps open up your own business? Chances are you’ll be far more successful with a supportive spouse behind you, so take stock of whether you significant other supports you through life events. If they don’t now, imagine what the future looks like?
