The couple checklist that could make or break your relationship
I’ve got a really cool thing over here for all couples who’d like to assess their relationship and see how much they actually “click”!
Sure, all couples are different, but the gist is the same!
There are certain things and aspects of a relationship where you simply need to be in sync in order for it to work.
There’s no going around it.
And isn’t it actually so cool being able to check all of these things off your list and figure out how compatible you two really are?
This relationship checklist honestly has the power to make or break you!

After carefully going through all these points, you’ll either realize how great you and your partner really are together or come to the realization that there are certain things that REALLY need work in your relationship..

Be warned – you’re reading at your own risk!
I’m just joking… but honestly, what you find here might honestly affect your entire relationship.
So be willing to work on it if that’s what it takes. After all, that’s the whole point!
So… are you ready to see what you’re made of?
Three, two, one… let’s go!
1. Neither of you ever tries to change the other, but you’re also completely comfortable voicing your strong opinions, no matter the outcome.

This is a very important thing to check off your list because it shows your mutual respect, care, and ability to be open, honest, and raw with each other.
There’s no walking on eggshells and speaking half-truths.
You respect each other and wouldn’t dream of changing anything about your partner.
But when the need comes, you’ll put your foot down and it won’t be weird.
2. Your communication in the relationship is healthy, open, and trusting, with zero passive-aggressiveness and no subtle digs at each other.
Communication can be really challenging sometimes.
Feelings get hurt and having strong urges to be passive-aggressive about it aren’t uncommon.
But with you two, it’s not like that at all.
You can be open, honest, and not feel awkward about telling the harsh truths.
You don’t try to diminish each other and you never take subtle digs.
You say it like it is and you don’t go to bed angry.
What’s bothering you is worked out on the same day and life truly is peaceful because of it.
3. You do fight, just like any other couple, but with one vital difference. There are no low blows. You two always fight fair, with all the cards on the table.
There’s no denying that fighting on occasion is inevitable in any relationship.
Nobody agrees on everything at all times, so it’s really okay – as long as the fight is fair and nobody tries to resort to low blows.
And you two never do. You appreciate each other way too much to fight nasty and dirty.
You never hold your partner’s past mistakes against them.
You work on the issues at hand and never try to sway from that.
Honesty and transparency are the glue that keeps you strong!
4. There are always ups and downs in your relationship, but with you two, the ups outweigh the downs by a mile!
You’ve been through your fair share of trials and tribulations.
You’ve weathered some harsh storms and moved past all the previous issues.
And now, you can honestly say that you’ve been having a wonderful time with each other where the good days are much more frequent than bad ones.
Nobody says it’s always going to be sunshine and rainbows, but you know that for any bad day, there are a hundred good ones.
And your good days make all the bad ones worth it, and then some!
5. You laugh with each other more than with anyone else in your life. Laughter is your favourite pastime and you’re never lacking in that department!

This one should be the case for all couples who want to really stand the test of time.
Laughing with your partner makes you feel so good, stress-free, and in love!
And you two can’t contain yourselves most of the time.
You’ve got your private jokes and your sense of humor is on the same level, so laughter is truly ever so present in your lives!
And you wouldn’t have it any other way.
6. Your plans for the future are aligned and you both know what the other one wants long-term, because you want it too!
There are no worries that you might realize your partner doesn’t share the same goals and dreams as you.
You’ve already discussed all of these important issues and you’re on the same page.
You know exactly where you partner stands on marriage, kids, and living situation.
You know their 5 year plan and vice versa.
You’ve discussed it all and your goal is to make it all happen in the years to come, and most importantly – do it with each other and nobody else.
7. Your partner is your safe harbor and your home. With them, the world stops existing, your worries disappear, and a feeling of tranquillity overcomes your entire being.

Your partner is your home.
There’s nowhere else you’d go when you need to feel safe.
There’s no one else you’d turn to when in crisis.
They’re your person and your rock.
When you’re with them, everything becomes okay for that moment.
Whatever’s going on in your life, it stops bothering you when they’re near.
It’s all peace, security, and tranquillity.
And in those moments you realize how incredibly rare, special, and unique this person is.
Without them, nothing is the same.
