A relationship is a lot of work from both sides. More often than not we are seeing more and more relationships fail. Being from a family who's parents are still together I've heard plenty of advice from my mom on what makes it work. Trust and honesty, you can't be with someone and constantly be questioning whether they're being truthful or not. Not only does it make the other person feel guilty of things they didn't even do, but it makes you unable to relax and enjoy you're time with that person. Being humble, you shouldn't focus on yourself. If you focus on pleasing the other person and taking care of them, then they will do the same thing for you. Plus it makes you feel loved and closer. And finally, love. How can you be with someone if you don't love them.
