Healthy Relationships

Healthy relationships are made up of respect, honesty, trust, and communication. A healthy relationship is a partnership that still allows each party to maintain their independence and ability to make decisions. 

Healthy relationships are based upon economic equality (the freedom to make decisions regarding work, money, school, and other financial matters), emotional honestly, sexual respect, and physical safety
