No you are not my friend.This are the foundations of a good relationship.We need to be able to express ourselves and just be who we are inside and not pretend to be someone whom we don't even know.This is normal.You are not expecting much at all and not to talk about being demanding.Take care.

honesty, trust, commitment, loyalty. What is love without these things?

That is very true.These are one of the ingredients of a good relationship.Being in love alone is not enough.Love needs nourishment to grow and keep alive.

Honesty and respect. To me those are the two most important things in any relationship. If you are honest with the other person and you respect them as a human being, so much the better.

Yes,this is also correct.We need to be honest in every relationship.Respecting each other's individuality is also important.

I expect to be respected and to be loved. I expect my husband to be true to the vow that he delivered on our wedding day, in front of God and in front of the significant people in our lives. If there is respect and love, then faithfulness, loyalty follows. I also wanted to be appreciated & accepted for who I am. In return, I am wholeheartedly willing to do my share. I hope I was able to answer youe question. Have a great night!

Yes you sure did my friend.I agree with with you.Not just love,but we also need to give respect for one another's feelings and individuality.Loyalty,faithfulness,honesty,trust this are also the foundation of strong relationship.One should also never break the vows and cheat on one another.

Understanding each other is very important.Without understanding no relationship can survive nicely.It will break and destroy the beauty of any relationship.

No love is not everything. To be a good lover we should have so many other things between a relationship. some of them we can mention but not all. honesty, truth, loyalty, love, respect, belief etc etc... it goes on....

Well, i ask for true love. Love is patient, love is forgive, love is everything and everything is love. Give what I can and receive what love gives. I expect true love from my partner. And i believe that is what i get from my partner. =)
