    I think it depends on your definition of love.  For me, love automatically includes trust and respect.  If one of those things were lost, then I don’t think that it’s truly love anymore.  But with all three, I do believe you can get through anything.

    Love is like glue, but you have to have something worth holding together.

    Nope it’s not. My reason is simply if it were, why then have a large majority of us have ex’s whom we loved? I’ve loved before. I loved him with everything I was. That love did NOT get me through everything. Same for him; loved many of his ex’s he didn’t marry them… so how could I possibly agree with love it the end all be all when clearly my experiences prove otherwise.

    I’m on the fence. I am very picky about the word “love,” so to me, love is an awfully strong force. Despite having been in previous relationships, I’ve only ever loved my Fiance. Really, my only deal-breaker—so the only thing that love won’t get me through—is infidelity.

    I also agree with socalmeli: It depends on what you include in love.

    Ok I’ll add what I DO think is enough to keep it together. Work. Work in every sense. Keeping your mouth shut sometimes, not nagging when you really want to, doing favors you don’t like, omitting the truth when the truth isn’t needed, doing sweet things to make them feel loved, taking criticism maturely, fighting when you need to, walking away when you should, making up after mutual understanding. That is what I think keeps it together. Not love.

    @vmec:  I agree, but I think most of those fall under the ‘respect’ category for me

    @helenberrycrunch: Oh snap, we’d have a respectable fight, where we later make up and make sweet lovin.

    definitly not! You need so much more to make a relationship work…there would be less divorced couples out there if all you needed was love.
