The Ingredients Of A Happy Relationship

I am always amazed when I read what so called experts in relationships consider the key factors that make a happy relationship. I have long thought that people today, especially the younger generation jump into relationships much too quickly. It seems to me that as quick as people meet each other, they are moving in together and possibly having a baby.
