The Curious Qualities of Balance (And Some Practical Advice)

What does 'balance' mean in a relationship? How do you maintain it, and what are some of the obstacles?

What makes a balanced relationship?

Perhaps when you think of 'balance' you think of 'equality'? But since people are actually not equal in all things, a more specific idea of equality (and balance) is called for.
