What do you mean by give and take in a relationship?

“It’s all about give and take” is probably something you’ve heard of many times. It means to enact reciprocity, or simply put, to do a certain action that you might not really like, but helps out or is something that your partner likes. This is the “give” part. This could be anything like going out of after work to pick them up their favorite snack, or it could be something bigger, like waking up earlier than them to make them their favorite breakfast. It’s not only limited to buying things, it could be just checking up on them making sure they’re okay, it can also be giving up time spent with your friends for time spent with them.

Although, at the same time, it means that your partner should be doing the same thing as well. This is the “take” part. They should be willing to do the same for you, to put the same amount of time, effort, and commitment to the relationship as you do. -mkNatural memory enhancer
