What Does A Healthy Relationship Look Like?

HEALTHY 

All relationships exist on a spectrum from healthy to abusive with unhealthy somewhere in the middle. A healthy relationship means that both you and your partner are:
 

  • Communicating: You talk openly about problems and listen to one another. You respect each other’s opinions.
     
  • Respectful: You value each other as you are.
     
  • Trusting: You believe what your partner has to say.  You do not feel the need to “prove” each other’s trustworthiness.
     
  • Honest: You are honest with each other, but can still keep some things private.
     
  • Equal: You make decisions together and hold each other to the same standard.
  • Enjoying personal time: You both enjoy spending time apart, alone or with others. You respect each other’s need for time apart.
     
  • Making mutual sexual choices: You talk openly about sexual and reproductive choices together. You both willingly consent to sexual activity and can safely discuss what you are and are not comfortable with.
     
  • Economic/financial partners: You and your partner have equal say with regard to finances. Both partners have access to the resources they need.
     
  • Engaging in supportive parenting: Both partners are able to parent in a way they feel comfortable with. You communicate together about the needs of the child(ren), as well as the needs of both parents.
