10 Signs that you are finally in a Mature and Adult Relationship
You don’t actually need to be mid-aged for your relationship to be mature. Remember, we are talking about the maturity of a relationship not how old a person is. I have seen 5 year olds that are far more mature than grown adults. A relationship is not an easy boat to sail, it will have arguments, fights, jealousy, tears, faith and disagreements but you will make it all work with the love and respect you have for one another. You both would be mad at so many things but you will make it work.
Here are 10 of the most basic signs that tell you you’re in a mature and adult relationship. Let’s begin:
You will accept each other for who you are
No matter what kind of people you both might be, as long as you love one another, it wouldn’t matter. Your past will not have any effect on your future; your partner will encourage all of your decisions and will help you flourish. They will help you become what you want to be. They will be your key to success!
You start making your promises a reality
Ideas discussed in those sweet moments of affection don’t remain ideas. They start taking the form of reality! Words are acted out, love is shown everyday and promises become reality. You start giving structure to every plan you made in the "honeymoon stage" of your relationship.
You want to start a family
I know, not everyone would want to start a family right away. But once you’re in a mature relationship, you both start giving thought to the possibility of starting a family together. You want to make more out of the relationship you have and you want to give it definition and meaning. You think that it would be an excellent idea to have miniature pieces of yourself running around the house.
You both are ready to make things work
You both want to make things work no matter what. You are giving this relationship your 100 percent and are willing to manage through some pretty hard times. Whether the issues are physical, mental or financial, you want to take life head on and together you believe that you can make things work.
You aren’t jealous, but people are
When you get a feeling that people you know are jealous of the perfection you both share, it means that you are in a pretty mature relationship. Because with maturity in a relationship comes the kind of perfection that everyone wants but is too afraid to work for.
Life feels in place
You feel that you are exactly who you are supposed to be, life is good and you are content. You aren’t continuously searching for something anymore, you are relaxed and are extremely happy with what you have.
Looks don’t matter
I mean yeah, you like it when your partner is all dressed up but in all honesty, looks don’t matter anymore. You would think that your significant half is the sexiest person on the earth even when they are right out of bed. You are not judgmental or obsessed about how hot your partner looks. No matter what, you are sure that they are the one’ and you cannot possibly feel more love for anyone else.
You know your partner’s limits
You know the boundaries and you don’t violate them. You don’t let your partner get uneasy no matter what. You respect each other’s privacy, though their might not be much left to hide at this stage. You don’t drive your partner off the edge. Arguments seldom make it to fights.
Family and friends are a priority
You respect and care for each other’s families. You are as much involved in your partners’ family as much as they want you to be. You make it a point to involve your families in every big decision, as a gesture of respect. You love to hang out with your partner’s friends and know one another on a first name basis.
You feel loved
When you are in a mature relationship, you have each other so nicely mapped out that you both feel in love all the time. You have a warm fuzzy feeling in your heart whenever you think about your partner, and you love it.
