Strictly speaking, a romantic relationship is something that shouldn't be considered as a business transaction or a commercial contract but unfortunately for most people, it's just a give-and-take policy with materialistic factors like money, name, fame, sex, and unfortunately 'Love'. Generally, everyone suggests any couple get adjusted with each other in every possible way so that the relationship would long last. According to a few situations, a couple must get along with their relationship to make it work better, not for the sake of society, responsibilities, and bodily needs. Don't you think a person must not lose one's individuality and self-esteem to one's relationship and one's partner under the name of a romantic relationship?
Adjustments start when a person starts taking a relationship as a societal attachment that needs to be worked out to follow the societal norms. But if a couple keeps adjusting themselves for every minute reason, they lose the zeal and passion towards each other and the relationship would lose its charm and everything becomes paler and tasteless. Do you want your romantic relationship to emerge as a burden or suffocation? Well, to get rid of such a state, you need to know how not to adjust to a few terms of your relationship.
Don't peep into the concept of 'not adjusting' so much and consider it as a blunder. It is not, and it indeed elevates the fragrance of romance between two people. It also doesn't mean you need to fight over everything and it is not a competition to win over your partner. Adjust with your partner but do not adjust with the situations where the aspect of romance cannot be seen.
Be selfish about what you need from your partner.
Make sure you get satisfied and remain happy by your partner's side all the time.
Never restrict yourself in speaking against your partner when you don't receive the deserved attention from your partner.
