    For me it has to be similar levels of intelligence (which creates respect as a result). If you don't respect your partner intellectually then there's really weak foundations in my experience.

    (And by intelligence I don't mean how many A*'s you got haha)

    trust, respect, good chemistry, communication, understanding, affection, making time for each other, etc..

    To be honest it depends on the people in the relationship. Some people might find the good key to their relationship is having time with each other, and plenty of time away from each other too. Others might think the key is putting a lot of effort in and communicating all the time. Others might think the key is doing spontaneous things from time to time. There are so many different ways, it just depends on the what the people in a certain relationship want/need.

    For me.. trust, love, enjoying their company, always being able to have a good time together, common interests!

    Luckily for me I have all those!

    come on then. spill.

    what do we think is key to a good relationship..

    personally, i think spending the correct amount of time together is PARAMOUNT!

    whether it be every day (no way) or just 2, 3 times a week (keep em' keen)...

    i also think great sex is important, probably more so than the time thing...

    OPINIONS PLEASE, EARTHLINGS
    While I will grant you that I’ve personally never spent as much time as two or three days a week with a FB or FWB, I don’t see that as sufficient time to spend with someone that you consider yourself to be in a ‘real relationship’ with. If you feel the need to spend four to five days a week with others why bother calling it a relationship. Just call it what it is, an exclusive FWB.

    As far as the key to a good relationship, imo there is no one key thing as there are many things that contribute to a good relationship. While obviously some are more critical than others, here’s a list of some of the things that I consider important.

    1. Best friends
    2. Share the same religious views
    3. Share the same political views.
    4. Total trust (OK maybe just >99%)
    5. Both are intellectually on the same level.
    6. Both have respect for their partner.
    7. Both want to spend as much time as possible together.
    8. Sexually compatible.
    9. Both share common goals in life and the work ethic to achieve them. (Family, financial stability, etc.)
    10. Both parties have the ability to overlook their partners’ minor faults.

    Being able to take constructive criticism, and recognising that neither you nor your partner are perfect and part of your role is to help build the other one up in confidence and morality.

    The key to a good relationship is trust and being able to talk to the person your with and being able to be yourself without those things your relationship can not be healthy

    Spend high quality time with each other. No time? MAKE TIME.

    The usual trust, loyalty and respect.

    Give and take.... be willing to close-one eye on mistakes....read : forgiveness (though my wife says you should also have a pair of eyes behind your head)

    Compatibility in personalities.... best if you both can complement each other.

    Sense of humour.

    A sound understanding on economics, finance and monetary issues.

    Understand the concept of we and ours and forget the I and me.

    A good sex life....... good doesn't mean by how long or how often.... compatibility is important... if she is into wanting it everyday and he isn't then that's an incompatibility..... if he is well-endowed and she doesn't like it.... it isn't ever going to be enjoyable.

    Love.......... love her for all she is and not just the qualities that attracts you.

    Actually a lot of relationships are all about common sense....... sadly books don't teach this to most people

    Oh yeah... before you think a relationship can be perfect.... it's never going to be as everyone has their faults and imperfection.
