Women have to face various ill-treatments, prejudice and bad experiences of the social structure and predominant gender roles.

In the long run, these molds their behavior, attitude, and ideology.

A partner of a woman who can acknowledge and understand her experiences and the consequential decisions, opinions, and approach of life can build up a strong relationship.

Once she starts trusting she surrenders her every bit to her partner.

But at any given point when this trust is broken, a woman starts distancing herself completely from her partner.

Once the trust is gone a vacuum has created that relationship which is irreversible.

A healthy relationship demands a good amount of intimacy.

Intimacy of a relation is not only the sexual needs but also to feel an innate closeness with one’s partner.

Love is the most important factor that can create a beautiful relationship.

It can range from helping them at the kitchen, holding their hand at the market to bringing them to surprise lunch at work, to take them for a date to their favorite spot. They love it all.

Making a woman feel that she is special, she is being loved unconditionally, she is being heard and that she is always in someone’s thought is the most precious feeling for her.

Women need and deserve lots of love and affection.

All these factors when taken care of can make any women feel more secure and happier in a relationship. Women have been created by nature as caregivers who devote their mind, soul and body to their lovers and in return, they deserve a lot of respect and love. Unfortunately, most of the time women do not get what they deserve. Since time eternal women have been treated as second class citizens and their needs have been given the least priority. Men have been taught to dominate and protect rather than to love and care. But time is changing and now men know the importance of keeping their lady love happy and content. So men are now seeking ways to strengthen their relationship by understanding their partners’ needs. Thus, understanding women’s needs and requirements in a relationship have become crucial to a great level.
