Zucchero, you hit the nail on the head! A relationship can only last a life time if there is true and fond friendship between the parties.

BUT

We have different types o! I am not talking about those who live together in unhappy and pain enduring marriages o!

I maen true and lasting love relationships and of course God is above all.

Remember: friendship first, then you both trust and belive in God and others follow naturally,, as in love, trust, commitment, children, joint responsibilities e.t.c

Good luck

Hi,

I hadhoped to see one word in here. Alas, it is missing. [/b]How about COMPANIONSHIP.[b] Just being there for the other person. There are times all we need is just a shoulder to lean on. Times when the burden of life requires us to be supported by others - emotionally and physically.

Infact, at such times we dont need to talk to others. All we need is for them to just be there.

For me, companionship is one key ingredient to a lasting relationship. Come to think of it, in old age what else do married couples provide themselves and which they fall back on. Companionship.

1) Not getting married.

2) Commit TO each other because you want it not because someone else *coughs (parents) coughs*wants you to.

3) Talk! Talk! Talk and more Talk (to each other not at each other)

4) RESPECT EACH OTHER. . .can't stress that enough.

5) Have Fun. . .don't know why but when people get together,  they think they have to be serious and all. B.O.R.I.N.G.

6) Allow your partner to miss you. . .nothing kills a relationship faster than the feeling of being stifiled (abi it's just me?).

@ TrooE

communication, patience, trust, understanding AND

dedication, tolerance, prayer, forgiving spirits, generousity, responsibility, ability to say sorry, focus, perseverance and love.

this is because where there's true love, faults are thin but where there's no love, faults are thick.

thanks.
