How to have a healthy relationship according to our fave rom-coms

Despite the beautiful love stories told in books, television shows and movies, picture-perfect realtionships don't exist. Every healthy relationship must be built on a strong foundation of honesty, trust and open-mindedness. These four films show that stumbling blocks don't signal the end of a relationship. Often, troubles we face have a silver lining. Conflict is stressful, but it enables us to learn more about our partner, overcome obstacles or see situations from a fresh perspective.

Another Cinderella Story
Another Cinderella Story incorporates friendship, family, love and dance. Mary and Joey's relationship is all about communication, but that doesn't prevent her jealous sisters from stirring up trouble. Selena Gomez and Drew Seely star in this modern adaptation of Cinderella. 

Embrace the things you have in common.

Arguments are inevitable and, often, healthy.

The Fundamentals of Caring
Again, Selena Gomez shows us how fun and exciting a relationship can beno matter the limitations. The Fundamentals of Caring follows the journey of a teen, his caregiver and a girl they met along the way.

Appreciate each moment.

Never be afraid to ask questions.

Based on the novel by Wendelin Van Draanen, Flipped showcases the most essential part of any relationship: trust. As the two find a balance between honesty, kindness and genuine friendship, they learn how to form a meaningful relationship.

Love is finding beauty in every little thing.

Keep in mind, no one is perfect.

10 Things I Hate About You
A hilariously modern take on William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, 10 Things I Hate About You explores love through the eyes of a teenager. Smart, witty and stubborn Kat realizes not everyone her age is a bore to be around.

Awkward situation? Laugh it off.

Most important of all, never hide your emotions.
