Every couple starting a relationship has an emotional bank account which determines how your relationship would turn out in the end.

According to Relationship researcher John Gottman , every time you turn toward your partner with warmth; follow through on your agreements; share affection, appreciation and gratitude; and create positive future plans you are making a small investment in this account. You can also make withdrawals and overdraw the account by doing the opposite.

It means that having a positive balance in the account can help sustain during any relationship crisis and have some more for long term sustainability, but when the account is already depleted of emotions that relationship will never stand the test of time.
