A common misconception about a mature relationship is that it happens at a certain age. Age has nothing to do with maturity, even if you are 15. It is all about how you learn and settle yourself according to those learnings.

Relationships are often thought of as a picture perfect fairytale where your whole life is like the honeymoon phase. When everything is all flowers and rainbows. Whereas, relationships do not feel like it, initially, and that initial shock takes many of us by surprise. A relationship, before it becomes all flowers and rainbows, has to go through a tough time. This is the period where all of your efforts are tried and tested. If you are going through this phase, then read along because this might help you figure out if what you are going through a deal breaker or a forever-thing.

1. Mature relationships do not have insecurities

A relationship that has insecurities means either one of you does not trust your partner entirely. You do not trust them with your shortcomings and the dark corners of your life. You will always be scared if you have insecurities which will stop you and your partner from being the true version of yourself. That’s what a mature relationship is about, accepting what your partner is and letting yourself be genuine with them.
