In a relationship between two or more people, there are some things that can go wrong.
In case of relationships between lovers, Steinberg formulated three important pillars who make the relationship: dedication, intimacy and passion. If one out of three is missing, the relationship can fail on the long term.
Dedication: the decision to start a relation for a certain time
Intimacy: trust, care, empathy, communication, understanding
Passion: excitement, energy, ehtousiasm, magnetic attraction to each other
These pillars are necessary to reach full-on love. In couples we notice that in temrs of intimacy and specifically communication gets harder in the long run, when the passion extinguishes. Do you recognise yourself or your partner in the above?
