    I'm not sure if someone has already asked this question, so I thought I'd give it a shot. what do you think are the most important factors that make a marriage or relationship successful, happy and healthy? I personally and strongly believe that a relationship needs honesty, communication and trust and if even one of these three things are absent, then the relationship will not work. And I also feel that laughter or finding ways for you two to have fun is a bonus. Let me know what you guys think!

    All good relationships require hard work at everything. Love, communication, comprehension of each other, patience, forgiveness, respect. They are thing that you have to work on daily. adjust, correct, and maintain a good discipline. It's as easy as people would like it to be.

    To a health stay for long term is a daily work ,respect,honesty,commitment
    to share and behold to love emotionally with strong affection and personal attachment
    In philosophical different intimacy and communication, one must have trust and
    willingness to allow the heart to love, being open real and strong keeps it in tact
    affection to venture one's mate keeps it new and alive for a long term........

    as others have said, communications, trust, and honesty are definite factors. beyond that, and just as important, is respecting each others role within the relationship...as well as constantly working at keeping the relationship exciting.

    you can be as trustworthy and honest as you can be...and talk all the time...but if the relationship becomes boring, someone will begin to search out excitement in other avenues. so, as much as we try to fixate on what's called "the big three" factors of a successful relationship, in actuality, anything that's missing in the relationship becomes "the big one" at that moment in the relationship. whether that's sex, support, encouragement, or whatever...if that's what's needed and it's not given, there will be issues. with that said, a relationship is an endeavor that requires constant work to maintain.

    in my book, GETTING TO KNOW YOUR MATE is the most important thing in any relationship. when someone asks you about your mate, be able to tell them more than his/her name and place of employment.

    i'm just saying....
