21. You keep each other’s secrets.

22. You work as a team.

There’s nothing greater than team work when it comes to relationships. Take any sport event that has to do with more than a person, you’ll see the great effect of good team work.

23. You share financial goals and plan them together.

Money break up even the best of friendship/relationships. It’ll be a good start to share ideas about financial goals. For instance, how much income you need to be happy as couples and not stressed about meeting your financial responsibilities as a couple and as individual.
