    Respect is absolutely the most important thing in marriage.  Kindness, caring, intimacy are all close seconds, but without true and deep respect, those other things aren't going to mean very much.

    Mutual respect.  I've read that genuine and whole love cannot exist without it (and mutual admiration, as well).  It's the thing that keeps people from taking the other for granted.  It's the thing that keeps the disagreements civil.  It keeps people from mistreating the other person.  It's just very important for a number of reasons.

    Putting your spouse first, and honesty, with out that it can all fall apart. Being totally open and show your love, people have to remember the word love is an action word,love is not just a feeling. Love without action is not love.Accountability is also very important, when people get married, they make themselves accountable to eachother.People are different and have different needs within a relationship, but these are the basics of keeping a marriage good. The biggest thing is that it takes two, one person cannot keep the marriage healthy.

    Without trust, there is no respect, there is a hitch to everything else - you are wary of being intimate, you try to protect yourself, so love takes a back seat to everything.

    If you cannot trust the person with whom you have shared the most intimate parts of your life, you don't have a marriage, just a cohabitation.

    COMMUNICATION! In my marriage, I believe that is one of the most important next to respect.

    You have to keep the flame alive. I think without communication, marriages tend to fail. besides, women like to talk and they like to have someone they can talk with.. whether its about their day, feeling, gossip, whatever it is. Without communication, you grow apart as a couple.

    I think it is love...but love of this kind needs to be understood better.  I have given my thoughts about this kind of love and would like to share it with you

    I agree with the first answer and more.

    Respect and consideratoin are two most important attributes in a successful marriage.

    Also "do unto others as we would have others do unto us". If you want love, give it first. If you want friendship, give it first.

    Give and you shall receive.
