People often wonder if they have made the right choice when it comes to their partner. They are sometimes not sure if they want to spend the rest of their life with that person. Love and relationships have puzzled scientists from all over the world. They are trying hard to find out what are the things that keep people together longer and how to make a relationship last long and be happy. According to these studies, the following 14 female qualities and behaviors indicate that the woman is the right one.
1.She is smarter than you
If you want to spend the rest of your life with your partner, make sure she is smart and intelligent. Smart women have been proven to protect men from dementia later in life. A smart partner will keep challenging you intellectually which means your mental capabilities will remain healthy longer.
2.She is honest
We all make bad choices and mistakes from time to time. However, being with a person who will always make sure you go back on the right track and tell you when you are wrong is extremely important. Having an honest partner is crucial if you want to have a long lasting relationship.
3.She has a positive outlook
If your partner always tries to find the silver lining of every situation, never let her go. Being around negative people will affect negatively on both your physical and mental health.
Being in a healthy relationship means you will encounter disagreements and minor arguments from time to time. They are a completely normal part of a relationship as long as both partners are prepared to compromise. The willingness to make sacrifices will reflect positively on your relationship and marriage.
5.She laughs at your jokes
For men, it is particularly important that their partner laughs at their jokes. If your woman already does this, take good care of her.
6.She has an open heart
Open hearted people and those who share personal information are considered much more attractive. One study has shown that open hearted people are perceived as more attractive by others.
7.She supports your goals and pursues her own
Scientists have tried to determine whether men prefer marrying weak women. However, this myth was debunked and it was discovered that successful and educated women get married just the same as others. Having such woman by your side will support and motivate you to become a better person and she will be able to take care of herself.
8.She has a good relationship with her parents
When you are considering marrying someone, first you need to take a good look at how they treat their parents. Because you should expect the same treatment in the future. Scientists have discovered that the relationship with the parents reflects on the intimate relationship as well, whether it is positive or negative.
9.She is kind
Kindness and generosity are very important for a healthy relationship. Being thankful for having your partner and for everything they do for you as well as letting them know you appreciate them, is very important if you want to make your relationship or marriage last long.
10.She remains calm in fights and also calms you down
Having occasional fights is normal for every relationship and the lack of disagreement is not a sign of a stable relationship. However, what is important is how you handle your disagreements and how fast you return to the previous state. According to one study, if the woman calms down first during the argument she can transfer the calmness to the man, but not the other way around.
11.She does foolish things with you
A long term study of the University of Michigan with 4864 married individuals showed that the happiest couples where those who drank alcohol together. Of course this doesn’t mean that alcoholics are happier partners. “It could be that couples that do more leisure time activities together have better marital quality,” says Kira Birditt, author of the study.
12.She has a life of her own
It is essential for both partners to have their own private space and time including separate friends, different interests and hobbies they don’t have to enjoy together. This is a sign you are both independent individuals with your own beliefs and interests and you are a couple because you complete each other, not because you didn’t have another option.
13.She accepts your flaws
Criticizing your partner will definitely push them away from you. And you should never tolerate such behavior towards you. If your woman accepts you just the way you are, you are definitely a lucky man.
14.She does not bear grudges
Being with a woman who knows how to forgive people will definitely keep her by your side longer. This does not mean you should take advantage of her because she will never let you cross the limits. We all make mistakes, often without the intention, and having a forgiving partner will help you realize them sooner and also give you a chance to correct yourself.
