Fortunately, there’s been a lot of psychological research into healthy and happy relationships the past few decades and there are some general principles that keep popping up consistently that most people are unaware of or don’t follow. In fact, some of these principles actually go against what is traditionally considered “romantic” or normal in a relationship.
Below are the most common tendencies in relationships that many couples think are healthy and normal, but are actually toxic and destroying everything you hold dear. Get the tissues ready.
1. Forcing S*x
Forcing S*x You’re not required to have s*x with your partner every single time he’s in the mood. If you don’t want to sleep with him, then don’t do it. You should only engage in intercourse if it’s what you both want in the moment. If he’s the only one feeling frisky, then he can take care of his needs with his own two hands.
