The one thing I value the VERY most, above anything and everything is honesty. If we are honest with people, then, everything else will fall into place. Dishonesty and lying makes relatioships fake, and if they are fake, they are not worthy relationships. A lie puts a huge black cloud over everything in a relationship. Honesty.

I think honesty is the most important thing in a relationship. Without honesty you will get no where in my opinion. Why be fake and not tell others the truth to begin with? I see it like tey will eventually find out s why do it in the first place.

That's right!! They will always find out eventually if there is something not true in the relationship.

You are right. A relationship must have honesty in it in order to have trust. At the same time I value humor. I don't know how two people can live together and not laugh at themselves, each other and the world without going crazy!

Oh yeah, without humor we'd bore each other to tears!

I value a lot of things in relationship. The vanity, the comfort, the excitement, the surprises. But most of all, I value the respect we give each other. The respect for our personal space, the respect for thoughts, our lifestyle, our time, our concerns. Everything. Especially the respect towards our differences and the willingness to accept and celebrate and adapt to the differences as an individual. I also value tremendously the effort my partner takes to integrate me in her life.

If I had not already given out the best response, I would give it to you. This is a very nice answer. My husband and I always respect each other's thoughts, space, lifestyle, time, and anything. Even if we feel differently on a subject, we agree to disagree. You probably have a very good realtionship!

What I value most in a relationship is TRUST, HONESTY and RESPECT. I do not care if you are rich or poor, handsome or ugly as long as you know how to respect your parents everything follows. Of course you should be trusted and one should be an honest person.. I hate so much people who lies. It really gets into my nerves..

what i value most in a relationship is also honesty. This would give make the relationship long lasting and also the trust. To have trust with each other is good foundation in a relationship. when its broken it's difficult to gain it back. so we must take care of it.

The first thing that came to my mind after I read the headline of your topic was trust. Trust is what I value most in my relationships. Because if we have trust, in any kind of relationship, it will bring understanding, honesty, and compromise.

yes, honesty is so important. without it, there is no relationship. yes, i have caught my husband in simple little lies, and i feel like because of those stupid little lies i cant trust him completely. the way i see it, if he lies to me about unimportant non-sense, he will definitely lie to me with no hesitation about important issues. i have explained this to him, i hane also told him that now i vant trust everything he says, and i think that made him rethink his lying. i think it has stopped, but maybe he is just getting better. i dont know. i want to give him the benefit of the doubt though.
