Here are the indicators of maturity in a relationship:
1. Stable and secure. A mature relationship has a sense of stability and security in that conflicts or misunderstandings do not end in break up.
2. Trust. You trust each other enough not to snoop through their privacy like checking their messages, Whatsapp chats, Facebook or Instagram to see what they are up to when they are not around. A mature relationship entails trusting that they are doing what's right.

3. Communication. Don’t assume the other person knows what is bothering you and hope they will read your mind and apologize. You need to sit and talk about all issues bothering the relationship and solve them before it worsens.
4. Appreciation and gratitude. You have to be appreciative in the little things in the relationship and find the time to say 'thank you' and 'I love you'. Also find little ways to show gratitude by buying each other gifts to ensure that relationship grows strong.
