  • My Ramone and I are very happy ... but we have tough times too. Respect. Respect is the key. We respect each other. We treat each other with respect. If we disagree, we do so respectfully. If we have a problem, we solve it respectfully. A relationship isn't good without respect.

  • Patience, Respect, Trust, Kindness, faith.
    I am always learning. It takes a lot of letting go of your own selfishness and rather be open to change, growth, and oneness.

  • I have found that in my marriage is Trust.. then Communications, Respect, and love. If you can trust your partner, then you can believe what he/she is saying. Then the respect will fall in order. After all that, then we fell more in love then what we had felt before.

  • Mutual trust, respect, consideration, cooperation, communication and you have to be able to laugh at things sometimes. Knowing that neither of you is perfect, and not expecting each other to be. Don't make a big deal of the little things you fight about, let them go and realize that they are not important enough to tear your marriage apart. It takes a lot of work, but if you work as a team, it is well worth it. good luck!!!!

  • My husband and I started marriage counselling before we got married and are continuing it now...not because we have problems, it just helps to keep us in check, and make us realize things we don't normally...in otherwords, it keeps us from having problems.
