The relationships of today cannot be compared to the days of our forefathers. In today’s generation, we have different marriages/relationships with different issues. Couples endure or should I say, “manage characters” in order to make their relationship last a life time. In this context, we will be discussing various relationships in our present generation, factors that could hinder the progress of a certain relationship, the most important things in a relationship as well as the marks of a strong relationship.
Relationships as defined by English dictionary is a connection of a deep romantic or sexual involvement. It could be related by blood, romantic/marital relationship. To be in a relationship, you must be spiritually, mentally, emotionally and financially sound.
To be financially sound, you must be pocket loaded for a sound and communicative relationship. One of the key factors in a relationship is communication and to achieve this, you need money. Not all time we are opportune to see our lovers due to distance and the likes. Financial stability is essential in a relationship simply because if a relationship becomes an economic burden on one person, then, it’s not right. In other words, you both need to have similar financial priorities.
The togetherness of two people in a relationship is predicted by their ability to find common grounds on many things. We often ignore the spiritual aspect of a relationship. Asking God about His will for one concerning this is very important. Apart from following your heart, you need to know God’s will for you. (Jeremiah 29:11) you know that the will God has for you is of good and not of evil and to give you an expected end.
You need to be mentally sound if you need your relationship to work. Are you mentally fit to be in a relationship base on your age factor and mind set? Although, age factor in a relationship doesn’t really matter because what matter most is the readiness of the heart. For instance, we see couples in their early 20s getting married compared to the ancient days.
Relationship comes with a lot of package, one of it is emotions. If you are not emotionally sound, you cannot deal with issues found in a relationship. There is a positive correlation between the heart and emotion. When you are happy or sad, it all reflects in your emotion and gives your mood as directed by the heart through the brain.
With the above factors in saying yes, you need to be sure of this with yourself and that of your partner.
