A healthy relationship takes effort, including good communication, conflict resolutio, and stress management.

Long-term, committed, intimate relationships are a source of joy and well-being for many people. People in healthy long-term relationships report higher levels of happiness, fewer health problems, and longer life spans. Their children also do better, with lower rates of substance abuse and greater success in school and in their own adult relationships. Although an estimated 45% of marriages end in divorce, remarriage is common and support is available for couples and their children going through this transition.
