i don't think money is necessary in keeping a relationship strong. Is so, how come there are some poor couples that have strong relationship?

You've summed it up pretty well, although I'll have to add good communication to that. To be able to talk about anything means that you'll have all your other qualities that you have mentioned!

well, i have been married for many years now. i met him on a blind date.you have to keep trust in your relationship.you have to laugh,even when times seem hard.always compromise.they always say a partnership is 50/50 no it isnt you both have to give 100%. and always ,no matter what be best friends.

Your definition just lacked God. Everything is true but without God, we are nothing. Without God, life is dull. Without God, there will be no word such as love. Without God, the purpose of our living will be nothing. That's what I believe. And before I go into a relationship (which I haven't been into before), I would/will ask God's 'Yes' first. There is something called "man's best" it is nothing compared to God's best. God's best is beyond what we could imagine.

when you're in a relationship, no one else is responsible but you two. All is in your hands if you're gonna make it work -then make it work. And with that, all that you have said goes with it. Subconsciously, it makes you faithful, honest, devoted, you learn to trust, you love, compromise and that's what makes it limitless and undying. The next thing you know, you're stuck with something you really can't get out of. But at the end of the day, all is worth. And its a good 'stuck' after all.

relationship, or you can say "love", is like plant. it's growing. it needs water, fertilizer, etc. the point is we have to take care of it, like we taking care of a plant.

besides all that you have said i feel that the two most important things that keeps a relationship strong and going is the desire to keep it and the concern and the devotion that you have for the relationship and the person concerned.
