What About Green Flags in Relationships?

While we know there are so often *red flags* and problematic behaviors in relationships, many of which can lead to divorce, we’d like to share some focus on the GREEN flags!

Seeing the glass as half-full, what are those great things to recognize in your relationship?

What can you make sure to see happening more (or to encourage happening) in case you are doubting your significant other?

What do you think of this list? We think it’s great! We think it’s a good one to share to help give you some clarity (or new direction) in how your perceive your relationship, or how you communicate your needs with your partner. Alternatively, this can remind you of what you’re looking for in your next relationship! Either way, it’s a good thing to keep these green flags in mind as we assess our relationships.
