What is the most important thing for a successful relationship except love?
Trust, honesty and mutual respect are all important in making a relationship work : )
communication. constant communication of problems, expectations and love. all problems, by definition, can be resolved. it takes an effort on the part of both partners to assist in the resolution.
partners also need support, assurance and encouragement, as well as the exchange of words of love.
If I had to choose one thing: trust. A relationship simply can't - and won't - work without it.
A part from all the other answers I'd say, self knowledge. If you don't know who you are and what you really want in life, you can be with the sweetest person, and not feel happy at all. To be entirely happy with oneself before starting that serious commitment, is absolutely an extra garantuee to be happy with another person.
Furthermore a successful relationship besides love is only a real good one if the sex is passionate and stays that way. If that part fades out like a candle, you might as well split up and find someone else.
The whole sex part in a relationship should be as much a task in keeping it passionate, as well as all the other tasks there are in a relationship. How do I know? I've had my share of break-ups and consider myself quite experienced in, how not to have a successful relationship:-)
Trust, communication, Feeling comfortable. Having respect for each other. x
i dont know
but in my country mariage is soo greate
the man and the woman love each other and get used on each other and thy always with each others and respect antill thy became amoste one human it soo scary but greate
it got nothink to do aboute comunication at all
it very anormal but soo greate at the same time
True communication and honesty.
What I mean about true communication and honesty is telling the truth even if it hurts their feelings for a minute.
Example: Wife~Honey,do these jeans make my butt look wide?
Husband~Not really,but put a red flad in your back pocket,you need that for wide loads and you don't need any tickets.
1) Reciprocally hearing and meeting core relationship needs;
2) Having realistic expectations about how long term healthy relationships really work (the real ups and downs);
3) Hanging out with family and friends who are pro-marriage or supportive of healthy long term relationships;
4) Knowing that there's most often no such thing as "harmless flirting";
5) The ability to set protective relationship boundaries;
6) Verbal criticism’s destroy relationships; learn to express, hear and meet the relationship need they concele;
7) Put your partner before all other people;
The most important thing is understanding, giving space and keeping expectations low. Try to live in present. Prejudice and feeling to be a winner always kills a relationship.
Learning how to fight productively instead of just getting angry and not communicating.
Except LOVE, Trust, Respect, and Communication is the Most Important thing.
I have to reiterate the communication thing. Nothing is more important then hearing, understanding and validating each other.
I think that it would have to be honesty, trust and respect.
Common interests outside of the home and family.
Partners who do things actively, that are not part of the relationship, help people bond deeper. Whether it is a simple hobby or a serious pursuit it will build both confidence and a feeling of being a team rather than you and them.
Becoming too much "best friends" hurts a relationship, especially in the area of sex.
Keeping a strong sex life is another thing that is often forgotten, x10 when there are children. Set apart time every day to connect at least a little. It doesn't have to be wild animal sex, although that won't hurt, but hug when you might just touch, kiss when you might just hug. When you do kiss make it a real kiss not just a peck. And that animal sex does have a place so make sure that it happens and that you aren't interrupted.
There is a time to stop answering the phone, unless it is an emergency. Tell your friends and family a code and make it very clear that if they abuse the code you won't answer the next time.
When you are out in public walking, hold hands, no matter how old you are. If you are the man you should be opening the doors and pulling the chairs. It isn't about her power to be independent it is about showing that she can depend on you to have her back.
Women; if a man opens the door for you, be it your partner or a stranger, its not because he thinks you can't do it.
Before you go to sleep every night take the time to hold each other, even if you have been fighting.
Finally; sex isn't a card to be played to your advantage. Play that game and your partner will find another dealer who doesn't hold the aces over their head.
Trust is the #1 ingredient in any relationship. Without complete trust everything else will eventually fall apart.
Very important to understand that you can "Never completely understand your partners actions". Most arguments arise from one party trying to question another persons actions, when in many cases there is no clear reason.
If I come one day and wife is moody and mouthy. I just have to let it go, I will never say what's the problem? unless there is any major issue to be solved.
I would expect her thing the same, we are humans and have up and down days. Need to endure at times to keep peace at home.
Integrity...having a set of values, standards and principles that you follow no matter what. People with integrity are not easily sway and that makes for a stable and reliable relationship. You can also trust a person with integrity to be faithful.
I don't know if I missed it..but I haven't read "mystery", I think I have to add this one. A little mystery to spice up the relationship, keeping your partner intrigue with you. Communicate and be true but keep some little cute secrets.

Can you really have a relationship with someone you don't trust.You can love them and want your relationship to work but if you don't trust them can it? Do you give it time and hope for the best?
