Building Trust and Connection in Your Relationship

Trust holds couples together – especially when they face life’s challenges. Without trust, couples can have difficulty making it through the ups and downs and being able to build a life together. Without trust, small problems can turn into major crises and/or arguments. Trust connects people intimately and without it, partners have doubts about each other that cam often undermine the relationship. Oftentimes, a lack of trust is at the root of most conflicts.
