Flexibility in a relationship is important, but there are certain things that you want to negotiate. Especially if you want to build a serious and long-term relationship with your love. That is why four things you may want to discuss with your partner.

1. Monogamy

If you don't want the same thing, it's not a good match anyway. For a monogamous or open relationship to work, you should both agree. Making compromises on this subject often lead to conflict and sadness. Be clear and express your wish.

2. Marriage

If you think marriage is important, don't give up because your partner doesn't like it. This can lead to a resentment or anger. So do not deny your desires, but talk about why it is so important to you. Who knows, you may come to a decision together.

3. Children

An important topic for when you are in a serious relationship. If this is a big dream of yours, but your partner clearly does not want this, then it is good to reconsider your relationship. And even if it is the other way around, it is important to be immediately clear about this. The last thing you want is to put pressure on each other.

4. Character

Yes, people can improve their communication, become more insightful and learn new behaviors. But they cannot change in character. So one character trait will be more fun than the other. It is not a package deal that you can choose from, you appreciate each other for the total picture. Does this not feel right? Then this will probably never feel right. Take it or leave it.
