In every relationship theres a problem and mistakes happen unexpectedly, how can we make our relationship strong? No such relationship is perfect, what ever mistakes of one another we need to be sorry and accept it. Openness , Communication, Understanding, honesty and a lot of patience and dedication to this relationship with your partner. Appreciation on everything he/she did is needed, simple thanks, saying ILOVEU and simple kiss is a big factor to build strong relationship.

For me it is simple as making God the center of your relationship. Because I believe God knows everything, He certainly knew us full well. He knew our weaknesses and strength. And He can mold us the way we should be and give us all the character and attitude that we need for our relationship.

You're right, there is no relationship which is perfect. It takes two to tango and it takes two to work on the relationship. In my case, it is having an open communication tht works best.

There are many ways to keep a relationship stronger.There is that give and take, open communication, understanding, trust, but for me the best solution is LOVE for love covers all mistakes and wrong doings. Though if you have constant communication, have that understanding and trust but without love all are useless and the relationship won't survive. Faith, hope and love but the greatest of this is love.....

you are right my friend.if you are ready to admire your fault , it is easier to solve problems between lovers.and also you have to trust the person you love.sacrifice is another quality which will keep your love most nearer to you.and last thing i have to say is try to kiss away your lovers tears and be with her/him when she/he need you at a difficulty situation

Me and my boyfriend, we really take time off to talk. We talk about a lot of things, or sometimes it's like we're talking but we're not talking at all. That's basically the little secret we have--we talk about things with open minds and that keeps our relationship alive and kicking.

it's really hard to talk about other relationship. though i can talk about mine. i have been married since 1995 and the relationship is still very strong. my husband may not be as sweet and romantic as every woman's dream but we have a way to show we love each other. relationship is a huge discussion and a never ending list for do's and don'ts, but i guess we created our foundation with trust and respect. you may also look at it as creating your own culture, your and his together.

A relationship can only be strong by the nurturing you give it. A relationship is built on what you give it. Love and trust and commitment are bonds that can give a relationship strength. As long as your heart is in the relationship, you always have a chance.

Relationship can be tested when it is shaken, you will not know whether it is strong or not unless you are shaken...yes, you mentioned all the possible ways to make the relationship strong...all of those you mentioned you need to work triple hard if possible, be a friend to your partner & try not to be too possessive, learn to compromise and learn to love your partner's imperfection. Do not set too much expectation, and always leave a space for forgiveness when they are at fault...remember that like us our partners are also not perfect & there are certain times that they are prone to commit mistakes.

Thanks for the advice on how you can make a relationship strong. I would like to add one thing which I think is missing on your list. TRUST. Because if you don't trust each other, it would definitely be hard to keep one's relationship strong. No matter what the person does or goes to, you just have to give out your trust. Trusting someone only happens once for me. Because when someone blows it, it would never be the same as before. Trust is just like a mirror: When its broken into pieces, it'll never be the same form ever. That's all. Best of luck . :)
