    I'm a romantic so I say love and romance.  With love, a relationship will continue to grow.. and romance will keep the relationship exciting.

    The most important thing is honesty and trust.

    If you have this between partners then you can deal with most other things!

    Commitment, honesty  and loyalty towards the good relationship are  three most important factors. While going for the relationship if we are committed  , attentive and give due priority , it would construct a deep base for its   long lasting and good relationship.

    Commitment, honestly, integrity, patience, respect,  empathy, good communication, ability to appreciate the other and see the good qualities in each other.. letting go and not making a big issue when things go wrong, forgiving and not carry grudges.
    You can make your marriage last forever if you have these!  smile

    In my opinion they are: Love, respect, tolerance, compromise, and good chemistry.

    Each person needs to be completely honest with the other. If you have a relationship built on lies, it won't last long. I think honesty and trust or two of the main things, but respect, commitment, love, and patience are very important also!

    Communication. Without it you have nothing. You could love someone, but how will they know it without saying it and showing it. A relationship will head to disaster quick without it!

    Learn to differentiate well with your partner, and become responsive rather than reactive.

    The most important things you need to have for a successful relationship is, Faith first and foremost, without faith and a belief in God nothing in your life will be complete or successful. Then you must have honesty, trust, and morals.

    Love, time and understanding. It feels great to have all of these in a relationship. And for me, a successful relationship shows growth not just  a couple growth but also an individual growth.

    you have to compromise, understand him or her, sacrifice, trust
    and romance....if there is true love and trust in a relationship it will last forever
    but its really important to find true love

    One word PHEROMONES - if you are in a relationship that started without that initial chemistry, then forget it.

    Trust and friendship, communication and respect. You have to have these. Romance can ebb and flow. And sometimes, when you have a preschooler and two in diapers, all you really want to do is sleep. So, chemistry and sex will ebb and flow. But trust, friendship, communication and respect will get you through the peaks and the valleys.

    Honesty, communication, and patience the basis of all of these is respect. All four of those things are a part of love, be it romantic or otherwise.

    Well, everyone else gave the obvious requirements. 
    My 2 cents: 
    Two individuals with type A personalities in a relationship are unlikely to survive.  Two individuals with type B personalities are likely to survive, though it probably wouldn't be a terribly exciting relationship.
    I believe there is a better chance of success if the relationship is comprised of an A type and a B type.

    learning to communicate well, seeing things from the other partner's point of view, understanding one another, each others differences, unconditional love, when both partners make each other feel safe, so they share things and not be judged.
