Do stuff together make sure there is always time for eachother. and if you love him and he loves you that love will be never ending.

this is true. time to spend together is also necessary. we might be busy with our day to day lives but spending time with each other will make everything better.

it's not that easy all the time to keep the relationship going if one isn't doing his/her part. the couple should work together to make it work. love should be accompanied with trust, loyalty, honesty and thoughtfullness to keep the love burning.

i feel, there is no hard and fast rule to work out a relationship. however the pillars on which a relationship stands are TRUST, UNDERSTANDING, ENDURANCE and LETTING GO. only loving someone doesnot necessarily work for a marriage. when we are into a marriage, we should be guided by these forces and try to do justice to all of these. it takes ages to build to a relationship but takes seconds to break it.

Continue dating each other. Take turns planning the date and surprise each other. Plan getaways that are spur of the moment and pack an overniter for your spouse. Pick them up from work and surprise them. Always remember to romance them. It is the little things that go a long way.

yeah, it seems surprising your partner would help your relationship to be strong and evolve into a better one. continue dating and talking over stuffs that bothers you and your partner is a good practice too so that you two will be able to know how's your relationship going on and how your partners feel about you and your relationship. constant communication is really important for the relationship.

Have long lasting patience indeed! Well, that's truw. The best way to make your relationship work is to have long lasting patience, endless patiencewith complete faith in your God and your commitment. The heart must approve of your genuine and sensible emotions. I don't know how much of what i am saying makes sense to you. but yes.... it does have a lot of sense. one must work on a relationship that's worth it and not just waste one's tears and emotions for an unworthy person.

if u involve trust in the relationship then i hope it will last forever. trust is the main pillar in any relationship and this is the only quality which can bring two persons together. the relationships that brk, brk due to some basic reasons. the first one is that now a days people take for granted everything that comes their way. they take their wife, children for granted and don't take care of them. this induces unsatisfaction in the relationships and this is why people start looking out and then the relationships don't last for long. this is the prime reason. then comes trust and in many close relations trust is the only thing that can sustain the relationships for long. people are not trustworthy anymore and they brk the trust of others for self-enjoyment and this causes a bitter relationships. then comes lack of expressions. people don't express what they think of the other person and they don't express their love. life is too short and we should love each other. but people fail to express their love towards other people and this results in weak relationships.

I think the problem is couples stop doing what they used to do when they were dating. The things that made your hearts skip beats. When they get married, they settle down to a routine and dont bother going all out to impress the other to add spice to their marriage. Marriage takes work, once you're in it, you dont just lay back and enjoy the ride. Just like a Ferrari, if its not serviced & maintained, its going to give you the finger sooner or later.

trust and respect for each other are very impt in any kind of relationship.if your respect your partner you wouldnt do anything that would hurt her..communication is also impt,if u have problems you have to open up and tell your mate about it..sometimes when problems pile up even if they are quite small they tend to get bigger when not shared with your mate.

i think keep comunication each other, trust each other, the most important thing is we can forgive each other because that's the hardest thing, hope it works :)

Well, one just has to be honest with his/her partner. =) "Do not go fishing on other lakes". Trust is really a major key factor for relationships to last. One cannot survive without trust. =)
