Here it is! The final episode of my series on the Right to R.E.A.L Love radio podcast.
In this episode, Jay and I wrap up our discussion to address the question: What can we do to ensure that our relationships last?
We leave you with these key takeaways:
1. Why our relationships can only be as healthy as we are
2. Ways to make a relationship last
In this episode and episode 2 we talk a little more about resources and books that can be helpful to couples.
Supporting your partner in the relationship you commit to is so important. You should do everything you can to learn about your significant other. You can lean on each other and learn from each other to make your relationship last. I am so happy to have the right kind of support in my relationship. Our great love and friendship for each other keeps our bond strong. It feels amazing to be so confident in what I have and who I share it with.
Be sure to also look up these books we mentioned during the series that can help you.

Whether married or not, there are key relationship lessons to learn and take with us in life. This podcast was aimed at singles but does not mean married couples cannot gain knowledge or insight. I have heard many times from married people that the best time to prepare for marriage is before you’re married. I’m certain life does not become easier just because you’re married. Same as it’s not necessarily a walk in the park if you are single and dating or in a long-term committed relationship. No matter the stage or time put into a relationship, it takes work.
What are you bringing to the table and what do you need your partner to bring to the table to make your relationship last and your love grow deep and wide?
Hopefully during this series, my first radio podcast, you learned something and gained some insight on how to make your current or future relationships last.
Remember to have fun with each other, show respect, have trust and give each other the space you need to make your love grow over time. May your relationships last for several seasons and develop in its purpose.
The more you communicate with one another about where you are and where you are going, the easier it is to know if the relationship is right for you. Remember everything has its own time.
