In this mini-paper, the following ingredients necessary for the development of healthy relationships will be elaborated on: (a) Love; (b) Good Communication; (c) Patience; (d) Trust; and (e) Loyalty.

A relationship cannot be a fulfilling one if we compromise upon respect and dignity. Respect and be respected; love and be loved; and, this will ensure a satisfying relationship.
Good communication waters the plant of a healthy relationship. It requires particular skills to have one’s ideas conveyed to the other person and to listen to his ideas patiently. One should try to let the other person know explicitly what one wants without having him solve the puzzle. Keeping others thinking what the actual problem is will do no good.

In the US, gays and lesbians are yet to be accepted by people as healthy part of the society. Homosexuals experience rejection and negative attitude from people around them (Pastorino and Doyle-Portillo 459). Hence, they are not able to participate openly in many of the social programs and institutions.
However, those who have a homosexual orientation experience a wide range of obstacles and dilemmas when it comes to participating in social institutions such as marriage, family, and parenting. In the United States today, gays and lesbians are still to be accepted by a majority of the people as a functional part of society.
Healthy relationships are important to everyone and take place between individuals and groups. The components of a healthy relationship include honesty, respect, trust, commitment, assertiveness, positive self-esteem and interests, communication.
