You support each other
The world can be a scary place, and one of the best parts about having a partner is having someone on your side when the going gets tough.
If you feel like your partner believes in your dreams and is there to listen when you need to talk something out, that's a big part of a long-lasting relationship.
"Asking your partner how they are doing sometimes without even sharing your own personal issues allows you to be completely available to them," said Hershenson. "Listening to others' problems and lending an ear is a good way to get out of your head and let your partner know you are fully present to listen to them."
