Whether you've been together for six months or six years, trust is an invaluable quality in any relationship. It is called the foundation of relationships for a reason, because without it, a relationship will never thrive. And though trust needs to happen with the big, life-changing moments, it should also be a staple in the day-in-day-out moments of your everyday life as well. There are lots of little things trusting couples do that are tell-tale signs of the quality of their relationship.
I've been with my husband for almost five years and in that time, I can say that trust hasn't always been easy. But as we've grown together, we've learned just how important it is, even for the simple things like being home on time or being transparent about conversations with others. Trust, although it certainly is earned, it also a daily decision, especially if it doesn't come easily for you. And when you both make the decision to trust each other every day, it will improve your relationship more than you know.
You'll be able to be apart, have meaningful conversations, and build a life together, without worrying about whether or not they're being completely honest. And when you reach that point, it's a beautiful thing.
