The term ‘relationship goals’ is a popular social media phrase used to describe an admirable relationship. One that others look up to, envy or aspire to have for themselves.
The couple may appear to have it all together, including a strong bond and connection, understanding of each other’s needs, communication that flows easily, mutual respect, unconditional love, commitment and shared values.
While it’s great to have inspirational couples to look up to, it’s also important to remember that what works for one couple, might not work for another.
The following quotes about relationship goals show the type of aspirational relationships that are possible. The deep love and understanding that is shared between two people and the commitment to making it work no matter what life throws at them.
