2 things your relationship needs most, according to survey

This research was published by the University of the South Pacific.

The best two things every relationship needs

A new study which used data gotten from all over the world produces 7 answers to this.

This research was carried out and published by the University of the South Pacific’s Robert Epstein and colleagues, 2016.

According to Eipsten and other researchers on the project, the important traits are communication, conflict resolution, proper knowledge and understanding of one’s partner, good life skills (keeping a job, staying fit, good money habits, etc), self management, sex and romance, and stress management.

Of all these traits, however, most of the 25,000 participants voted for two as the most important.

Majority of the voters took the poll in favour of communication and knowledge of partner as the most important things needed in a relationship.

The implication of this is that even good sex, romance, ability to resolve conflicts and stress management are not as important to a relationship as communication and an understanding of one's partner is.

Do you agree with this? Are these two things really as important as the survey says?
