    Respect is at the top of the list with truthfulness, forthrightness, compassion, loyalty, faithfulness, concern, kindness, thoughtfulness, faithfulness, desire, intent to act out of want and desire, stability, trustworthiness, and love with like of an individual. You can love someone and not like them....and you can like someone and not love them.

    Pretty important. If the other person doesn't respect you, then you will probably get misused by that person in some way. It's not a good way to have a friendship. Also, I could never be with my husband if I didn't respect him. It's one of the factors that could entirely shatter our relationship.

    Respect is the key foundation of a great relationship because there is no way you could have a relationship with someone who does'nt respect you because either way if you let someone disrespect you its like allowing them to hurt or just abuse you either emotional or physical.

    Respect is vital for a healthy relationship of any sort. I don't need to like someone's ideas to respect him or her. We all have different priorities in life that lead to different life choices. I can't fault others for being different than I am because they are often dealing with very different circumstances. When you don't respect the person you are romantically involved with, you are essentially viewing him or her as a commodity and not as a human being.

    Respect is more important.For love can die when you are being treated poorly. Also, by respecting the other person, there is more unlikely of committing anything against him/her.

    In my opinion, respect is by far the most important thing in every relationship. There  can't be no love or friendship without respect because respecting somebody means that you acknowledge, see and hear the other. When you take respect out of any relationship you take away the foundation on which is based.

    Good question.  Respect is the foundation for wholesome relationships.  My hub "How to Maintain Respect in Male-Female Relationships" answers in greater length and is one of popular hubs.

    Respecting our loved one is very important in a relationship. Respect creates and maintains the relationship. If you are getting dominated or disregarded by other person it hurts and it more hurts when that person is the one you love.
