Not every relationship is built to last. If you want to know if your relationship is going to make it, there is one thing that can clue you in. According to experts, how you and your partner act in certain moments can determine if you have a relationship built to last or not.

"Every single moment of every single day can make or break a relationship," Rachel Wright, MA, LMFT, the co-founder of Wright Wellness Center, tells Bustle. "Every moment we're together with our partners is an opportunity to make or break a relationship."

Contrary to popular belief, it's not always the big fights or the big moments that determine whether or not your relationship has staying power. In fact, Wright even argues there are really no "big moments" that make or break us. Instead, it's the collection of all the small ones that make the biggest difference.

The reality is, all couples will have their share of ups and downs. If you're looking to be with your partner forever, you should expect it. But how you respond in certain moments is the key here. So here are some big and small moments that can predict whether or not a relationship will last, according to couples therapists.
