if you in a serious relation and you know your relation is worth the sacrifices and effort you make then always use the magical word sorry even if you know it is not your fault but after telling sorry make him/her realsie he /she was at fault.but dont accuse or blame her for the problem.just tell her casually rather than discussing it out this leads to fights again!but if the matter is really serious then a discussion is important!and the sorry part was only if your partner has not cheated on you for a thrd person.i personallly believe if he/she has cheated on you for some other person then the relation is not worth the effort.i can't and i wont forgive my bf if he cheast on me for some other person.havn't been in such a situation but i believe i wont forgive him.and always always say love you to each other!express your feelings!this one is especially for you guys.learn and try hard to express your feelings!dont just keep your love and feelings with yourself!you are not going to take it with you when you die to heaven;)!this is my bf's all time fav dialogue!i luv you baby but i dont kno to express but you know i love you!how am i supposed to know if you dont tell me i wonder!:))so guys express your love and for girls say to them that you love them as much as possible!

Honesty, understanding and the willingness to work things out are essential. Reminding the person you love that he/she makes you happy reinforces their view of themselves and at the same time, makes them feel good about themselves.

I would say communication, mutual respect, and of course love. Without any of these, the marriage becomes shaky. The husband and wife should be able to talk to each other about anything and everything. Once you get married, your best friend should be your spouse, because he/she is the one sharing everything about your life.

Understanding each other and compromise each other.Sometimes we need to inject some fresh blood into our marriage.To give him or her a little surprise,remember his or her birthday and the wedding ceremony.To take his or her parents as yours.And to have a baby.

Trust (to me) is the most important thing. You must learn to trust completly. You must also learn to compromise. And forgive. If you cannot learn to forgive, well then you cannot have a great long lasting relationship. In every relationship someone needs forgiven, sometime. And if you cannot do that...

Communication is essential - just keep each other aware of what's happening in your lives. One caveat - you may have a few things in your past (before you met) that you may be a little ashamed of. Think carefully before blabbing them out, as sometimes your partner DOESN'T need to know everything that happened before you met - only teh stuff that might be relevant. Compromise - give and take is crucial. You will never agree on everything unless one of you is a doormat. What you need to do is agree on the 'core' aspects of your relationship and agree to disagree on other stuff. Never go to bed angry - just don't do it. Try and get talking before you end the day. It's easier to keep a grudge going when you've slept on it, in my experience. So don't go there. Keep your temper. Never hit or threaten to hit your partner. Ever. If you're allowing yourself to get angry - and that's what it is - no one can MAKE you angry - then go for a walk around the block, do some gardening, do some housework and just calm down. No matter what people say, if you get in to financial problems it WILL impact your relationship. If financial problems are looming, talk about them and work out plans between you to deal with them. I've been with my wife for over 25 years (including before we were married) and we've been through all sorts of stuff. But we're still together. God knows how she puts up with me.... :-)
