“If all you ever deal with in a relationship are problems, you’re going to have a problem relationship,” says Dr. Phil. Of course relationships take hard work, but there is a straightforward formula for making any relationship successful, according to Dr. Phil. "The formula for success in a relationship is a function of the extent to which it's based on a solid underlying friendship, and it meets the emotional needs of the two people involved."
Do you know your partner's needs? Do you know your own? Now's as good a time as any to start communicating about them and work toward meeting them.
