Michael Laitman, On Quora: “Dating and Relationships: What are the keys to a successful relationship?“
The key to a successful relationship is in the willingness to concede. Upon mutual concessions, partners have the ability to grow their love for each other.
One who concedes in a relationship gains peace, connection, tranquility and love. It leads to positive connection and one that is not based on pride and domination. My teacher, Rabash, once used to say that “a family can exist only out of mutual concessions.” We need to love, to treat each other amiably, concede to each other, and by doing so we gain a sensation that we call “love.”
Concession depends solely on you. There is no need to pressure the other. If you exercise concession, then you will see what a powerful weapon it is, and through your examples to concede, you will simply win over your partner.
