Mother's Day 2013: Readers Share The Best Relationship Advice They Learned From Their Moms


When it comes to matters of the heart, it's true what they say: mom really does know best.

We've long looked to mom to help us navigate the often difficult landscape of love -- seeking her advice on everything from how to approach a middle school crush, to what you should expect from your first year of marriage.

In honor of Mother's Day on Sunday, we asked our followers on Facebook and Twitter to share the best relationship advice their moms have ever given them. Click through the slideshow below for 40 love lessons from our readers' wonderful mothers.
