Great relationships are probable when both parties have a similar, trustworthy, and valid definition of a great relationship. They must also consistently practice this definition. Robert Fritz states that this is the math of relationships – It takes two to say yes, and one to say no. When both parties are saying “yes,” there is an excellent chance for a great relationship, but if one person says “no,” there is little chance for a great relationship.
So that highlights some undesired news for relationships. You may be doing everything right, but if the other person is not practicing a good relationship definition, the relationship most likely will not be great, no matter how hard you work.
