According to relationship coach, Bruce Muzik, the best gift you can give your partner is the gift of a great relationship with their parents.
Muzik says people who live the happiest and healthiest lives are those that have great relationships with their parents.
Couples who have happy marriages also tend to have great relationships with their parents. This means that if you have a great relationship with your parents,there is this sense of high self-esteem within you and this will help you relate with others better.
He says that if you help your spouse or partner experience this great relationship with their parents (doesn't matter if they are dead or alive), you transform the way your partner experiences and sees themselves.
The truth is out self-image and esteem come from our parents mostly. So in a committed relationship or marriage, when you help improve the relationship between your partner and their parents, you unconsciously transform the way your partner sees themselves and in doing so, you transform the way your partner sees the world and sees you and your romantic relationship between the two of you.
