How do you tell the good relationships from the bad?
Not all relationships are created equal. All relationships share different beginnings, middles, and unfortunately for some, ends. Relationships can only be as good as the people who are in it, and since we are all so different as a people, the level of stability and happiness in our relationships vary. You will always encounter some couples who feel like they have their entire lives ahead of them, and there will be some couples who you know are just bound to break-up at some point.
How do you tell the good relationships from the bad? There some signals that you could be looking out for. If you feel like you find yourself doubting the kind of relationship you’re in, don’t worry about it. You’re not alone. Many people experience this problem.

Here are 8 evident signs that you are in a happy relationship that is worth keeping and worth fighting for:
