    Passion in a relationship is vital as the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink.

    Without it, there will be a starved relationship!

    why have a relationship without passion?

    that's like a pizza without cheese

    or football without the football

    or a car without wheels

    or a rainbow without unicorns.

    Spontaneous, intense passion is very important in a relationship. Yet in order to maintain passion in a long term relationship one must cultivate a passion for learning the relationship maintenance skills that enable it over the long haul...regrettably, we were not born with these skills.

    Passion is like fashion. It will be hot today and gone tomorrow. Passion ignites. But to keep the fire burning for long, there has to be a controlled supply of fuel, not in bulk, but in measured quantities. It covers affection, consideration, forgiveness, light-heartedness, subdued ego, moderation of expectations, acceptance, freedom within boundaries, casualness, friendship and so on.

We all have a basic need to feel passion.When people have passion for life or their relationships, you can also see it and feel it, even if they are quiet about it.so passion is very important  in relationship..........smile

    Lust and passion are the strongest of all emotions in a relationship. Without them there is no relationship.

    It is important, but being friends first is key to life-long happiness with someone. We need the support, love, similar goals and aspirations of our friend to keep passion alive.

    That depends upon how one defines 'relationship.'  In a truly romantic coupling, two people are always passionate about each other. Though, they may express this passion in different ways, as time goes on, it is present.

    A relationship needs passion. Without passion, the relationship would not be worth having.

    I can't imagine a relationship without passion.
    It would be like sleep walking through life.
    A relationship without passion, chemistry, & romance is boring!
    You might as well be plantonic friends.

    These types of relationships usually take place after someone has been hurt in a previous relationship where there was passion. The hurt person intentionally seeks out a new person with whom they have very little chemsitry with but looks good "on paper" in order to protect themself.
    As time marches on they become bored to death and usually end up hurting someone that cares deeply for them.
    "Playing it safe or settling" in order to avoid pain rarely leads to happiness in the long-term. It is possible to have a passionate relationship with someone who is also good to you.

    Passion doesnt always have to start and end in the bedroom only.. yes it is that and so much more. its about conversation, knowing, sharing, connection - mind body and soul. Deep deep soul strings.. dats, true passion

    in relationship with whom or what?
    passion is what drives all what we do;
    no passion - no success;
    if your passion has gone look for another one;

    To me passion is one of the most important ingredients in a relationship. It's right up there next to love and trust.

    Passion is one of the most important parts of a good relationship. You should be passioned about your partner because Passion is the reason why we have relationships in the first place, otherwise you are simply platonic friends like mentioned before and the relationship is dead and will fade away.

    To make a nice metaphor here:

    "A Relationship without Passion is like fishing from a Barrel"

    Definately Very important. Sometrimes it the passion that keeps you and your partner together. It twists in and out of your relationship, binding is closer and closer together.

    Passion could be considered the single most important part of a relationship. Without passion the relationship would not have even begun. Many couples forget that and lose that passion which brought them together. Yes there maybe more important aspects of relationships ( trust, respect, love ) to name the obvious. However many couples flame die out because the passion is gone. Keeping passion in the relationship is what keeps both parties interested. Keeps the relationship fresh and interesting. A relationship without passion is a very sad, boring one and one that I would hate to be in.

    Passion is very important in a relationship. Without passion, there is no fire to burn, not even a spark to ignite a relationship.

    Passion in a relationship means the spark which can light the world of two people.... its sheer chemistry. If passion is missing, its like having to eat a delicacy withtout salt!!!

    Any relationship can be healthy and long lasting if passion exists in it. Passion helps grow the relationship in a romantic manner and makes it powerful, even if one of the partners sometime makes a mistake. The relationship without passion makes it motionless and sometimes sharing the emotion may be fruitless or less rewarding.

    In fact passion is a main tool of any relationship that treats the other partner or loved one with more selfless way. It brings an awesome effect of making the relationship that cannot be hurt or broken with a mere sense of anybody’s effort.

    Having a passion in life means to be truthful, powerful and straightforward. A man with passion in life is always positive about life and may extend a helping hand to anyone he or she adjudges fit to seek the assistance. Having passion for someone you love and trust can make you feel better and that’s why it is always important in a relationship.

    Simply make sure that the passion in a romantic relationship should not be offered to anyone else as the consequence of it may be harmful.
