What makes love last? How do you establish trust in a relationship? John Gottman says by being there. Will you be there for me when I’m sick or struggling, when I’m down and hurting? Will you be there for me when I’m unpleasant, difficult, crazy, absent? Can I rely on you? These are important questions in a relationship. If the answer to these questions is yes, we can develop trust and a secure attachment to our partner. Does your partner know you’ll be there?
