The word relationship applies to a relationship between two partners, a relationship between family members, a relationship of trust or a relationship of dependency.

Individuals who enjoy a healthy relationship sometimes feel the other person has ignored some of their needs or has not respected some of their rights. In a good relationship, this does not happen very often. When things go wrong, the people involved talk to each other and find solutions to the problem. In an unhealthy relationship, there is often lack of respect and the people involved cannot find a solution to the problem
