Getting along used to be determined by trial and error. You did not analyze it you either got along or you did not. These days we are trying to speed up the process with compatibility tests and website like E-Harmony. Sometimes it works and sometimes it is not.
I have always called getting along compatibility. It is the second thing to look for in a relationship after availability.
After centuries of arranged marriages and a few hundred years of dsisasterous relationships based on using chemistry and a criteria for marriage we are trying to combine sexual attraction and compatibility.
This exercise is large in the purview of the self-help movement. Psychologists sometimes try to help clients but in a different way.
