I cannot give you 100% assurance that your relationship will last forever. But there are some signs that tell if a relationship has a staying power or not. And those signs of a long-lasting relationship are what I’m going to share with you in this post.

1. You love each other unconditionally:
When unconditional love exists between couples, it’s a sign their relationship will last longer.
Although, at the beginning of your relationship, you may think you love your partner without knowing that you are just crushing on him/her. When those feelings disappear, you will realize that you don’t love him/her. Not only that, but you will try to make him/her live a life that pleases you.

2. You support each other:
A long-lasting relationship is one in which the couple supports each other. If your partner always assists you in everything you do, it means you will likely stay long in your relationship.
Couples who support and encourage each other tend to live longer in their relationship than those who don’t. Can two walk together except they are in agreement? the answer is ‘NO’. So, if you support each other, it simply means you are ready to go into a long-term relationship.
3. You never stop trusting each other no matter what happened:
Trust is a fundamental thing in every healthy relationship. If your relationship is built on trust, it will surely endure forever.
You never stop trusting your partner no matter what people are saying about him/her. You believe in your partner and you avoid doing anything that will make him/her stop trusting you. Trust is another sign of a relationship that will last longer.
4. You both work for the success of the relationship:
No relationship will last longer if the couple does not contribute to its success. If you or your partner works hard to see that you maintain your relationship, it’s likely to last.
Any relationship where the couple is nonchalant to the progress of their relationship, such union will die quickly.
5. You don’t bear grudges, rather you forgive each other:
A relationship that will last forever is one in which the couple forgives each other when things go wrong, without bearing grudges.
You forgive your partner when he/she does something wrong. Your partner also pardons you when you make a mistake. It shows that love exists in your relationship. And any relationship that is rooted in love by constant practice of forgiveness will last.
6. A very good communication exists in the relationship
Any relationship is likely to end quickly if the couple cannot communicate properly. Communication is the basic key to a healthy relationship. When couples adopt good communication skills in their relationship, they will always resolve their relationship problems without inviting a third party. So, if both of you are good listeners, your relationship will last. Here are ways to improve communication in your relationship
7. You feel comfortable in the relationship
If you are always yourself, whenever you are with your partner, it is a sign that you are compatible with each other and the relationship will last. But if you always get drained after being with your partner, it may be a red sign in your relationship
8. You share the same value with your partner
You share a similar goal and ambition with your partner. That means you have certain things in common. For instance, you both enjoy having fun, doing things together, etc.
9. You never take each other for granted:
You value your partner and your partner also value you. It is another indication of a relationship that will last. You never take each other for granted. You never stop appreciating each other. When your partner does something good, you appreciate him/her. The same thing is applicable to them (your partner) when you do something good to them.
10. The relationship moves slowly:
Any relationship that moves faster is likely to die quickly. But if you notice that your relationship is not moving too fast, then it’s a sign it will last. When a relationship takes time to develop, it simply means you are giving yourselves time to study each other for a better understanding of yourselves.
