    It really depends on the kind of relationship outcome desired. It also depends on how much you value your relationships.

    It depends also on your desire to keep the relationship on a steady course by showing your willingness to invite and encourage opinions from your significant other. It's not about control-it's about compromise.

    Our lives are about relationships with other people and not much more. If you had all of the money, cars, food, clothes, vacation homes, toys, movie passes and free travel passes that you wanted and you were the ONLY person on the planet-how fun would it really be? 

    Our lives are meant to be shared. They need to be equally important to both because relationships are always controlled by the person who cares the least in any relationship and they are NOT about control but mutual satisfaction.

    Compromise is necessary for any relationship regardless of length of time it has been ongoing. Think about it if there is no compromise it's just a one sided relationship such as between an employer and employee. One person says something and the other responds without question in a robotic way.

    So yes I would agree that it is vital to the interests of both people.

    i think that compromise is always necessary....everyone has their own way of thinking and if you have two people working as one in a relationship than both need to be an integral part of it...therefore, compromise. It helps you see the "other" side smile

    I don't believe one has to compromise on their principles or the things that make them who they are. Other things like which movie to see, where to go eat, or weekend plans are for the most part "small stuff". You can easily take turns.
    Ideally you want to make sure you have as much in common with someone before you decide to enter into an exclusive relationship or marriage. Opposites may attract in the short term but it's like that attracts like in for the long term. No one wants to fight or argue every time there is a decision to be made.
