When you mean "we (a couple) are in a better relationship than ever" by saying "We are better than ever", is "better" the comparative form of "good" or "well"?

In other words, to express that we're in a good relationship, which is correct?

We are good.

We are well.

According to this link here, "better" is the comparative term for both well and good. However, it is important to note that well is an adverb*, whereas good is an adjective.

Hence, "We are good" is the correct sentence grammatically.

NOTE: Well can also be an adjective, but the meaning is different. "Well" as an adverb is "in a good/satisfactory way", whereas is an adjective when referring to good health.
