“To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, to love and to cherish till death do us part.”

The word ‘cherish’ is defined as to hold or to treat as dear, to feel love for and to care for someone deeply and tenderly. When you cherish someone, you let them know every day that you care for them and are glad to have them in your life, you make them feel on top of the world, you do things for them to make them feel good, you make every effort to meet their needs, you are kind and thoughtful and do not take your better half for granted, you show appreciation for them and respect and admire them for what and who they are.

But how many of us truly cherish our relationship? Here are some signs to tell if you are in a relationship that is cherished.

1. You trust each other

One of the most obvious signs that you are in a cherished relationship is that you two trust each other. Being so means you are in a healthy relationship, but this doesn’t happen overnight. You have to make things work and build trust in each other and make sure it isn’t broken. And the fact that you do not like anything or anyone get into the way of your relationship, means that you share a special bond.
