    Giving preference and respect to each other is the basic criteria of building a strong relationship. Adding commitment, honesty and sincerity is the second phase to make the relationship  more strong than ever before. Finally putting a lot of trust in it would undoubtedly make the relationship long lasting and both the partners would love to live for each other forever.

    Nowadays, at least here in America, I'd consider any relationship that has lasted 3 years or more, to be "long term."  Anything much less, is just a trial run...  Alas, baggage and kids with different parents often occur, when a person has too many short-term relationships with a lot of people.

    A long term relationship to me will be bearing with each other in all ups and downs. Over the years, I learn about my partner's behavior and characters. So, I do know what is her likes and dislikes. It is always the matter of give and take. Sometimes we need to give in to certain arguments.

    Communication is the best way to have long term relationship.

    For me a long term relationship is anytime beyond a year. But many people view it as a committment.

    Respect and trust with each other will lead to a long term relationship. Respect and trust begets love and understanding. So once these qualities are present to couple then relationship will last long.

    I agree with the other writers. It isn't about a length of time; it's about a commitment. However, that commitment seems to come towards the last part of the "in love" phase. For me, that was about 6 months (sad!), but we've since learned how to keep the love going for another year and a half.

    It just depends on the love! smile

    I'd say anything beyond 2 years (without a breakup) is a long-term relationship if you see each other on a regular basis or live together.
    On the other hand if it's a long distance relationship you have to be careful not to confuse "calendar time" with (actual time) spent together. If you're only seeing each other 3-4 weeks out of 52 per year it will take you much longer to truly get to know one another. It would be risky to become enaged with someone having spent so little (actual time) together.

    If I can get a girl to spend a three day weekend with me, then I believe we are in a "long-term" relationship.    That may not apply, however, on Tuesday.....
