Equality, respect, patience, a sense of humor (always important), communication, and of course love.
But these are things I don’t consider requirements, just building blocks. We are by no means perfect on any of these things. 🙂

As for vows, I very much want to include the sense of humor aspect of our relationship. If you knew us, you’d know why we need one, haha! 😀

@justjade:  We wrote our vows based on a list of values that were important to us. I don’t remember them exactly, but I know it included:

– honesty

– supporting one another

– being a team

– communication

– respect

– equality

– putting each other first

– fidelity

Respect, equality, (com)passion, honesty, being a team, tolerance, a sense of humor, and much more.

Great topic! PPs have covered it nicely. 🙂

For us, one aspect we are focusing on is the concept of “us” before everyone else. Not that we don’t love our family and friends, but our marriage will come before everyone else and everything else. Maybe it seems a bit selfish, but I’ve seen people develop problems in their marriages in part because they are not putting their marriage first. We firmly believe that if the marriage is strong, what comes from it (home life, kids, relationships with family and friends, even job performance) will be strong as a result.

I think the foundation of any solid relationship is communication, trust, respect, and love. If you have all of those things in abundance, no silliness like cheating, ignorant fights, putting anything or anyone above your marriage, abuse, etc. will ever happen.
