Stages of Development of Relations in a Couple

It is no secret to psychologists that the stages of development of relationships in a couple go through the same stages as parent-child relationships. And if all the stages have been more or less passed with the parents, then there is a great chance to build a healthy relationship and be able to go through these stages in adulthood. There are only four stages of relationship development:

Codependency

Without it, further trusting relationship between partners is impossible. This stage can be considered the foundation of the relationship. It is characterized by phrases with “we” and emphasis on “our” community. It is a sweet period; not for nothing in relationships, it is called the rose and candy stage. When the main goal of a partner is to conquer the other half, to devote a lot of time to each other, not to differ, and to do a lot for the partner. This period is very sweet, but it cannot last forever.

Expectations of Girls in Relationships With Men

Men often assume that girls want to date only wealthy, powerful, charismatic guys. But, firstly, it is not worth generalizing about other people, and, secondly, for women, there are more essential values in relationships than the representatives of the sterner sex think.

Time

You should devote as much time as possible to her. You may think that, first of all, she needs your money, and this becomes an excuse for the fact that you disappear at work for days. Yes, it is impossible to live without money. But your financial soundness loses all its power if she feels like you don’t want to find time for her. She will still choose the guy with whom she can spend her free hours, and not the person who will just throw money at her feet.
