Trust is a big thing, and it’s what keeps us standing by our partners when accusations arise. Cupid has some relationship advice on ways to support your other half if a tough time like this comes up:

1. Be their shoulder to lean on: Be there for them. Be there to listen to them. If your partner is being accused of something they didn’t do, they will most likely be under some real stress, so they need a support system. You must be mindful of their emotions. Just make sure they know you have their back.

2. Be positive: Talk to them, offer words of encouragement. Don’t criticize. Depending on the accusation, this can be a dark time. Try to be the light in the darkness for them. Obviously, don’t try to downplay what’s going on, but try to have them see that things will get better. Hope is sometimes one of the things we need the most.
