Relationships are a lot of work, there's no doubt about that. It takes effort from both partners to make it a healthy one, a task that requires a lot of patience, commitment and dedication. Not to mention, there has to be mutual respect, trust, support and love to truly deepen the connection between two people. So while you may put your heart and soul into this bond, you need to know that your partner has your back too and that his love for you is genuine.
Sometimes, a verbal declaration isn't enough though. Actions are louder than words and the gestures your partner makes can tell you whether he's truly in it for the long haul or not. This becomes even more complicated once you become a mother because now the responsibilities are divided and it's in this crucial time that you need your partner by your side.
