Research suggests that trust is an essential ingredient to a healthy relationship, but we all know how hard it can be to sustain.

Think of someone with whom you have a close relationship, then answer as honestly as possible about how much you agree or disagree with each of the following statements.
When you’re done, you'll learn how trusting you are and find resources for fostering more trust in your relationship.
