I'm a hopelessly romantic and believe that LOVE is the main thing that keeps the relationship going. How about you, is Love everything in your relationship?

There are so many ingredients that are important to having that great relationship. Love is defintely among them but i don't think it is everything you need. Trust and commitment to the relationship are just as important to have.

If a relationship were a car, I think love would be the key. You need the key to start the car and keep it running. Sure you can hotwire it and it could work for a while, but it requires messing with the integrity and is a sad substitute for a properly functional vehicle.

No, for me love is always not enough to let your relationship keep going. Love is just another ingredient in a relationship, i believed that respect and trust must go with it.

yup! u are 101% right.The power of love is enormous!! With love,, u see nothing bad about a person however wrong s/he may be. Everything seems beautiful.A relation is strong when there is love from both sides,but a one-sided love may prove bitter.

Absolutely as without love there is no tolerance, no compromising and certainly no trust. Love is a ultimately the reason why two people decide to be united as one.

I don't have, rather,am not in a relationship as you imagine, but I BELIEVE YES, IT'S LOVE THAT KEEPS EACH AND EVERY RELATIONSHIP GOING. We are born of love and will merge in love. So it is better, to think, to act, to speak of and with love. It will generate love in all kinds of relationships..:)

Love is required and apart from that trust, understanding, caring and lot of sacrifice too.

Love is the most magical feeling ever! Yes I do believe its what keeps my marriage together, but its not the only factor, there are many other things that keep us together, but yes definatly the main thing!

I still don't have an experience about that so called love. I hope i could experience one. I think I must read some articles like this so that i may be prepared when the right time comes.

yes love is every thing in relationship as concerned to me. but love only is not enough to keep the relationship it will be known to everyone in experience. One must have patience, money and a lot of things to keep the relation to move on safely. But love has its own importance in relation ship, because without love even though we have the other things, that relation cannot hold for along time.
