    One word answers are not allowed so let me put it this way.

    Mutual Trust is without a doubt the single most important thing in a relationship. Both have to trust that they truly love the other and that the other loves them. Both have to trust their honesty, fidelity, faithfulness and commitment to the relationship.

    Without trust, you have nothing.

    This has worked for my wife and me for 33 years.

    There are a lot of things that are important but I think the one that is paramount would be trust.  Two people must trust each other to be able to have a good intimate relationship, and to really have a true love.

    There is no single most important thing because for a relationship to work there are so many factors to consider. Relationship exists between two unique and different individuals that have mutual feelings for each other and those feelings were combination of many emotions, mixed emotions. For a relationship to work, you should be willing to expand the definition of all emotions that comes with it. Sorry, if I didn't answer your question directly, but I am giving you a tip to broaden your heart, because that's what makes relationship successful.

    I agree with Larry Wall  mutual trust,love, and in my opinion communication, your partner and you must work together, hand in hand for better or worse etc.

    Chosing the (right) mate for yourself!
    Each of us (chooses) our own friends, lovers, and spouse. No matter what happens we cannot escape the fact that we said (yes) at some point in time.
    In my opinion the number one cause for breakups and divorce is selecting the wrong mates for ourselves!
    Ideally you want to choose someone who shares your same values, wants the same things for the relationship, (naturally agrees) with you on how to obtain them, and has the same depth of love, desire, and respect for you as you have for them.
    In order for him or her to be "the one" they have see you as being "the one".
    A large part of the problem is people don't enter into relationships with complete awareness of who they are, what they want, and need in a mate. They become emotionally invested in someone before that person reveals their "authentic selves". The next thing they do is try to (change) their mate or hope they change overtime. 
    When it comes to relationships most of us (fail our way) to success! Very few us meet "the one" the first time out the gate. Live and learn.

    I agree that trust in the single most important thing....in my opinion if you don't have trust you have nothing at all.

    The relationship is based on trust, commitment and care.  If no trust is there, other two things hardly  matter. Trust is always on the top of the successful bonding.

    One word answer is not possible to be put. So my reply is: "You".
