The best kinds of relationships have couples that are committed, honest, and thoughtful when it comes to their partners. On the other side of the coin, the worst kinds of relationships are filled with abuse, distrust, and toxicity.

Not all love stories are created equal. There is no singular love story that encompasses the narratives of all couples in the world. Each relationship will have its own unique qualities that make them special and worth fighting for.
