Although no one can perfectly predict the future, plenty of people wonder how long they're going to be with a certain significant other. Will this romance fizzle out in the next month or so, or is it going to last for the rest of your lives? Well, if your partner says these certain things, then it already means they think of you as a teammate for life. And for most people, that's a wonderful sign about what's to come.
People have been trying to figure out what makes a relationship last for about as long as there have been people. But as it turns out, there's no magic trick to making love last. Sometimes it just comes down to work. "Another secret for a long marriage: Both partners need to commit to making it work, no matter what. The only thing that can break up a relationship are the partners themselves," said Kelly Campbell, Ph.D, associate professor of psychology at California State University, San Bernardino, in Greatist. Although there might not be any great love songs about working on your relationship, it's still the foundation for so much success. Keep this in mind as you review the signs your partner is in it for the long haul. It'll take effort from both of you, but a lasting, healthy relationship is worth the work.
