Ekta Kapoor is the queen of Indian television. Her serials are all about entertainment. On dull days, all you have to do is switch on the T.V., sit back and relax as her regular soaps transport you into a dramatised world.
From Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi to the currently popular show Naagin, Ekta Kapoor has created tons of T.V. shows, all of which revolve around couples. Whether it is Ranvir and Eshani or Ram and Priya, all of these couples have taught us something or the other about relationships. While some are downright funny, there are a few lessons worth learning from some of these shows.
Here are the 8 relationship lessons that we think every couple can learn from Ekta Kapoor’s serials.

Who said that the right time to fall in love is when you’re really young? In the case of Ram and Priya from Bade Achhe Lagte Hai, love happened a little later in life. But it turned out to be successful, didn’t it? So age should never be a factor when it comes to love!
Trusting and having faith in your partner is the key to a good relationship. Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi’s Eshani trusted Ranvir completely and supported him through his tough times. That said, it is also equally important to be aware of your partner’s intentions.
In Kya Hua Tera Vada for example, Mona’s blind trust in her husband Pratik, led to the downfall of their marriage! So trust your partner, but don’t be ignorant and naive.
If the love between you and your partner is one hundred percent true and genuine, it will always emerge victorious. No matter how many problems the two of you may face, if you truly love each other, you will surely end up together at some point in time. Case in point- Itna Karo Na Mujhe Pyaar…Nachiket and Ragini proved this, didn’t they?
Let’s face it! There are always going to be certain family members who may try and sabotage your relationship. But never let that affect the special bond that you and your partner share. In Kahaani Ghar Ghar kii, Chhaaya tried so hard to ruin Parvati’s life! But she and Om always managed to stay together, no matter what. Lesson learned!
Yes, you may laugh! Ekta Kapoor’s serials have taught us that love truly does not take into account shape and form. By this we mean, it’s totally okay if you’re a secretive naagin (Naagin) or a cold vampire (Pyaar Ki Yeh Ek Kahaani). If your partner loves you from the bottom of their heart, your shape, your size, your height and all of these little things won’t matter!
Each one of us has a past. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. Sometimes, your past might rear its ugly head again and try to ruin your current happiness. For example, your ex might suddenly make an appearance and try to ruin your current relationship. This is exactly like what Raman’s ex-wife Shagun did, when she tried to ruin Raman and Ishita’s bond, in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein! But don’t let your ex mess up your current relationship! Be strong, put your faith in your partner and make your relationship work.
When you’re in love, you need to start putting your partner’s needs and happiness before yours. Being selfless is a very good trait. Just like Tanvi from Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki, who decides to marry Rishi for non-selfish reasons, you must learn to be selfless and keep your partner happy.
Apart from some useful learnings, Ekta Kapoor’s T.V. shows have also shown us certain impossible situations. Well, we’ve all heard that love knows no end and that true love never dies. But did you know that love is immortal? In the case of Tulsi’s beloved Mihir returning so many more times than we can count on Kyunki Saas, we’re really starting to believe that love can be immortal! The person dies but love remains forever!
Who knew we could learn such great relationship lessons from Ekta Kapoor’s serials?! Well folks, looks like this is your little takeaway for the day. Be sure to apply it in your love lives!
