I feel to make a relationship strong you need to have love and trust. You need to be willing to compromise. One person shouldn't be doing it all. A strong relationship is a partnership. Both partners point of view should be considered.

i would think it's a mixture of everything but then, reality is different. not many are blessed with all. so for me in my personal opinion, it'd be understanding and trust and communication. if there is love, then all the better but i feel that so long as there is the three that i mentioned, it would keep a relationship, marriage strong. i do have 2 of the former. as for the latter, sometimes there's a lack of thus, there's misunderstandings and all but we get by.^_^

I thnk what makes a relationship strong is love and good communication. If you truly love the person your with, and your able to talk to them about anything then you'll have a strong relationship.

Faith, summarised in the words 'I believe'. Two simple words which have a great influence on many things. From faith other criteria come out. Examples: - I believe that I truly love him/her [b][/b] so I will accept her the way she is. - I believe she/he can change for the better [b][/b] gives rise to among other things trust, hope, patience, perseverance, tolerance, and loyalty. all the best, rosdimy

There has to be a good balance of everything. Love is not enough to make a relationship strong. ... mutual respect + trust + good & open communication are also important.
