One of the best things that you can get out of a relationship is resiliency. Bustle says that there are some things that you and your partner should be able to bond over that could show just how great you two are together, for better or for worse.

  • Inside jokes are between you and your partner, and they show that you both have a similar sense of humor which is a big factor for how successful a relationship will end up being.
  • Holidays and family traditions can be hard to give up when you first start dating someone and are visiting their family instead of your own over a major holiday. As you've been with someone for a few years, you start to develop your own traditions.
  • Shared vision for the future because this is something that you and your partner have formed together and are mutually looking forward to.

Connecting with your partner is a big factor in the success of your relationship. To be able to bond with them over similar humor, future plans or traditions can spell a long and happy relationship.
