“Relationships include: fights, jealousy, arguments, faith, tears, disagreements, but a real relationship fights through all that with love.” – unknown

Relationships are a source of incredible joy, but they too spark up suffering sometimes and lead us to tough personal challenges.
I do believe that the idea of perfect relationships does not exist.
No man is perfect, then how can their relationships be? But I do believe in the idea that the kind of partnership that goes through the fire and comes out the other side smoking, but stronger.

The couple that you vigorously stalk on social media isn’t that good as it seems. They might have problems too.
If you and your partner are experiencing hard times in relationships, that could be a sign that everything is going to get better soon.
You need to have patience and devotion to each other. Entrust your partner and make them feel you have their back, no matter what.

A relationship of this kind can endure all sorts of pain and displeasure, life may serve you with.
Not all conflicts are the same. You need to spot the difference between the healthy and the unhealthy ones. It can be confusing to distinguish one from the other, especially when love is involved.

We have brought to you the benefits of hard times in relationships.

1. You’ll stop taking your partner for granted:

When we face difficulties and have to sort them out, we go through a refinement process. You might be taking your partner for granted and not giving them their worth.
These things bring resentment and low self-esteem to your partner, which is harmful. The ways to fight fair in a relationship will let you know, how to deal with bad times in your relationship.
Once you pass through the tough times, your ideas about the relationship also alter leaving you a deep sense of worthiness and understanding for your partner.

2. The doubts and troubles get cleared:

Both of you might have something which is troubling you or creating confusion and misconceptions about each other. The things that you used to fight for, will no longer bother you. A fair fight can help you refine these things and make your trust much more strong.

3. It makes our relationship stronger:

When we discuss things that are bothering us and come to a conclusion that could solve that, we grow a stronger bond within us. As Dr. Wyatt says to Bustle, “ When couples go through hard times in relationships and learn to work through it successfully, it often strengthens their bond and closeness and makes their relationship more resilient than it was before.”

4. You’ll be grateful once you’ve been through it:

When people go far away from each other, they understand their importance much more than when they were close. Once you and your partner go through tough times, you’ll understand the need for peace among you. You’ll be grateful for the things that you learn and come to terms with.

5. Your views for your partner might change:

The way you used to be with your mate, might change this time. You’ll be able to get a more accurate view of your partner’s stress and anxiety handling capabilities. Earlier, you never knew how your actions affected the other partner. But now, you’ll be much more reserved and careful before you say harsh things.
Your outlook on your relationship might change this time.

6. Your trust will grow much deeper:

The tough times set a huge example of how we deal with things. After the confusion and doubts between you and your partner get solves, it’s a matter of fact, that you start trusting each other, than you ever did. You will evolve and will be amazed to see the partner you always wanted to have by your side.
