\n A key ingredient for a couple’s existence is the set of values they bring\n into a relationship. Each one of us has some type of values that was \ninstilled into us either by family or friends. There are several types of \nvalues that are important if you are looking for a successful and happy \nmarriage. \n Patience- to me is a key aspect in a relationship for a couple of \nreasons; first, it gives your partner a real vivid picture of your mental \nstatus; people with patience seem to have better coping skills and \nsecond, people with patience tend to see the whole picture and are able \nto help diffuse the negativity and increase the positivity.\n Be observant -This value seems to elude many couples involved in a \nrelationship; the importance is critical because it gives your partner the \nfeeling of being valued; ( i.e.- notice appearance\/ work quality and the \nmind signals that are sent). In a relationship this value empowers you to \nunderstand what surrounds you and what is the importance now.\n Have compassion- This shows the kind and loving side in a \nrelationship; it has so many components such as communication, \nempathy and understanding. When we care for another it opens a world \nof honesty and love. Showing compassion helps you as a person, \nbecause it presents an inner quality that demonstrates sincerity and \ntrust.\n My last value is a rare one and that is understanding. This hidden \nvalue helps to complete the many components of a relationship. It helps \nto identify the inner emotions and thought process our partner may have.\nSometimes, understanding can be difficult, however, it paves the way we \nfeel and without it the relationship may fail. The more we understand our \npartner, the more we are aware of their identity.\n\n Good Luck !!
