#1 Planning a trip together
You may wonder what planning a trip has to do with your partnership. Already during the planning itself, you will realize: A whole lot!
Because planning reveals to you exactly which travel style your partner prefers and on which things you completely disagree. Of course you do not have to agree on everything. A partnership without different interests and opinions often does not go well. Finally, you, as well as your partner, can also compromise. However, compromises are one thing, completely different travel styles are another.
Because, depending on which type of travel you are and, which type of travel your partner prefers, you are different types with different values. Values that play a role not only in travel, but in other areas as well.
If you notice already during the planning of the trip that your partner has completely different values and also compromises badly or not at all, you should think about it. Just imagine how these values will play out later on when it comes to raising children and finding a place to live together.
As for the rest, a common journey with shared moments welds together and creates beautiful memories. You can remember these for a long time to come.

Your two characters should complement each other so that you can support and complement each other. However, if the differences in character are too different, conflicts quickly arise. A healthy balance is needed here.
#4 You feel comfortable in each other’s presence
The most important thing is that you feel comfortable in the presence of your partner and vice versa.

#5 You are always there for each other
