The three C's of a healthy relationship are:
Definitions of each type are included below:
Communication in a relationship is vital to make a partner feel needed, desired, and appreciated. Communication is both verbal and non-verbal, and couples should learn to cultivate robust and easy conversation with each other on any topic. Healthy communication is not always about talking but more about listening and acting. Likewise, it is not what is said that is important but how it is said.
Compromise is critical for a healthy relationship. Ideally, partners share different personalities, experiences, thoughts, and behaviors. Finding common grounds means agreeing on a compromise that makes both partners feel heard and understood.
Commitment typically means putting each other and the relationship first. Commitments need a lot of giving and sacrifice that brings joy and fulfillment to each other's lives. When each partner knows the other is committed, building trust and intimacy becomes easy.
