Dr. John Gottman has found that there are two key ingredients in the success or failure of any relationship: trust and betrayal.
Bill Radke wanted to get deeper into these topics with psychologist Dr. John Gottman, author of “What Makes Love Last?” about what separates healthy relationships from struggling ones.
