Everyone deserves to be in healthy relationships. Romantic relationships that are healthy include open communication, respect, trust, honesty, support, shared responsibility, and compromise. Both partners should feel like equal decision-makers and should feel like they can have their own friends and activities outside of the relationship. Both partners should also be able to set healthy emotional, physical, and digital boundaries. Conflict happens in every relationship but, in a healthy relationship, should be handled with effective communication and understanding.
