What is Relationship?

According to Oxford Advanced Dictionary, Relationship is the way in which two people, groups, countries behave towards each other or deal with each other. By this Definition, relationship has to do with our attitude, behaviour and our disposition to others.
There are classrooms for English Language, Mathematics, Biology and the rest but there is no classroom on on how to develop or maintain a relationship. A good relationship is the backbone of a successful marriage, no wonder there are news of broken marriages everywhere.
Relationship is experiencing life together. Life is meant to be shared.Relationship calls for selfless love, honesty, sharing, sacrificial giving, sympathetic and comforting attitude towards others.
True relationship occurs when people get honest about who they are and what is happening in their lives. They are free to share their hurts, reveal their feelings, confess their failures,admit their fears, acknowledge their weakness,  and ask for
help and prayer.
Many relationship have collapsed due to lack of effective communication. I hope these tips will help you. Read on! 
Effective communication is essential to the strength and longevity of your relationship. Almost everyone knows this, but does every one know how to apply it? What exactly do you have to communicate to your partner? Here are some tips on how to open up and strengthen the lines of communication in a serious relationship:

1. Give importance to openness: The foundation of effective communication with your partner is that you are always honest and open. Don't be afraid to express your feelings, whether they are positive or negative. Also, feel free to share your ideas no matter how silly or ridiculous you think they are. Being open to each other is the first step to truly loving each other, especially because openness means that there's a fair amount of trust in the relationship.
2. Avoid moments of argument:
Every time you feel a fight coming on, ask yourself "Is this important?" Nothing's worse than hours of shouting insults and harsh words at each other. Although both of you could just be caught up in the moment, the words you utter in these moments of anger will be remembered forever. So before a small argument grows into a full-blown fight, ask yourself first whether the argument is important enough to risk losing the relationship. Usually, it's not. After all, even if you "win" an argument, you know that no one truly wins in these situations.
3. It helps to talk with your partner daily about your everyday life: Even the little things count. Whether they're funny, silly, touching, mundane, or annoying, anything that happens to you will allow you to connect more deeply with your partner. You should also encourage your partner to talk to you about their day. Sharing these details is one of the ways in which you can share each other's life. They may seem unimportant and irrelevant, but discussing these little things will encourage you to communicate about the bigger, more important things.
3. Talking about your problems is always healthy:
Whether it's your personal problems or the problems in your relationship, talking about them is a way of getting things out in the open. For personal problems, it's a way of reaching out and getting support. Your relationship will be much deeper if you go through the bad things as well as you go through the good things. If you're having trouble discussing relationship problems, get a mediator or a counselor to help you verbalize your thoughts without getting hostile.
4. Listening is also an important aspect of communication:It's not really communication if only one person is talking. Make sure that you give your partner the time and opportunity to talk to you. Pay attention to the non-verbal signals that they give off as well. Does he or she look tired? Has your partner been hinting about spending more time with you? Paying attention to what your partner says and what your partner shows you is the key to being an effective listener and a treasured partner.
