Compromise

You and your partner might have different ideals, tastes, wishes and feelings. Therefore, in a relationship, someone must compromise. Both persons in a relationship should be ready to compromise, however, a balance must be maintained. Conflicts will sometimes crop up in every relationship.

Respect Each Other’s Privacy

Give some space to your partner. There’s no need to share everything every time. Let your partner have some time alone or with his friends. It is important to give some space to your partner. If you don’t trust your partner, then that means there’s something very wrong in the relationship.
