Relationships are important in life. Whether they are with family members or with friends and spouses, relationships need your time, effort, care and energy to go a long way. Some relations, which are made in the teen years, carry on for life, while others made some time later may fade away. Here are some tips, which can make your relationships grow stronger and healthier:

You trust the other person to listen to you and be there for you when you need him/her. A healthy relationship blossoms when you support the other person and share your thoughts and interests.
Respect: respect is another important factor, which helps build a healthy relationship. Whether it is between husband and wife, parents and children or dating partners, mature relations can develop only when you respect the other partner and give him his space. You have to respect the boundaries set for each other and let the relations grow. There may be disagreements but you should make them a reason to make your relations grow stronger.
Trust: probably the most important aspect of any relationship is trust. You need to trust your partner in all circumstances. You have to instill the feeling of trust in your partner and show him/her importance in your life.
Spend time together: life has become so hectic that there is no spare time for your loved ones. You have to squeeze in some time to spend some time together. This makes the bonding stronger and you feel good. If both partners are working, they should meet at weekends to know what the other person is doing. This applies to parents as well, who should, occasionally check with their children and spend time together to let them know that you are there for them.
Laugh together: humor is the best stress buster. Therefore, you should try to spend time and laugh together. Share jokes, messages and secrets to add spice to your relationship. The ultimate thing in a relationship is time spending and communicating.
