It is not difficult to have a healthy relationship. What 's hard is to remember always that you do not want the relationship to go haywire. So you tend to give into certain situations, fight with your partner, argue over things that do not make much difference, allow your ego to get the better of you and eventually ruin the relationship which meant so much to you at the onset. It is, therefore, essential to always keep in mind that no matter what happens you should know whether the issue at hand is something more crucial than the relationship itself.  
10 Rules For A Healthy Relationship
Listed below are 10 rules for a healthy relationship you should be aware.

1. Be fair

Fairness is mandatory. You cannot expect to have the upper hand in a relationship nor should you allow him to be too demanding and give in to his expectations without thinking. If you allow him to mold you as per his whims, remember that the relationship is not a healthy one. The same holds true if you are unfair in your expectations, demands, and arguments.

2. Be honest

Honesty is the best policy – if not everywhere, definitely in the case of relationships. You cannot afford to lie to your partner because trust forms the foundation of a healthy relationship. Being truthful also earns you respect in his eyes.

3. Curb over-expectations

Do not have too many expectations from your partner. Remember that he is a normal human being and even he has dreams and aspirations, and his sole purpose in life cannot be to fulfill every wish you have. Not that he can be lackadaisical about your needs, but you cannot have unrealistic expectations from him because that is not what a healthy relationship is all about.

4. Give space

One of the critical rules is to give him space and most definitely, not nag. When you are in a relationship, yours and his personal lives do not cease to exist. Spending quality time together is undoubtedly important, but sticking together all the while is not a good idea. You also have your friends and family who have not disappeared!

5. Forgive

To err is human. Your partner can make mistakes – it is very normal. Even you can make mistakes. But if you want to maintain a healthy relationship, you should be able to look over the little faults that your partner has because nobody is perfect. Learn to forgive and watch how beautiful your relationship becomes.

6. Have fun

Being in a relationship does not mean that you have to be far-reaching always. Have as much fun as you can together because these are the memories that will help you build a stronger and healthier relationship with the person you love.

7. Have a sense of responsibility

Always have a sense of responsibility. Just because you are in a relationship does not mean that all your responsibilities now fall on him. No doubt that he should be responsible but it does not give you the excuse to act irresponsibly. At the end of the day, you are accountable for your life, health, and well-being.

8. Do not be over-dependent

Being dependent on a partner is nice, but being over-dependent kills the beauty in a relationship. It then becomes more of an obligation which no one likes to bear. Do not make yourself a liability for your partner because in such a case, he will not want to be with you any longer. Be independent, stand on your own feet, and you will earn more love and respect in his eyes.

9. Listen

You should know how to look. Avoid the tendency to talk relentlessly without giving your partner scope to tell. Listening is a quality that makes you earn more respect in his eyes, and he knows that you will be there to listen when he speaks.

10. Express your love

Last but not the least, you should show your love often. Say ‘I love you’ often. Showing affection by kissing, hugging and holding hands will perk up your relationship and make it healthier with time.
