Long-suffering. Communication. Compassion. Honesty. Trust. Faithfulness.

Me and my sweetheart are doing some relationship counseling, and one thing we had to do was list what is needed in a successful relationship. We could not use \"love\" in any form. This is what I came up with: tolerate your differences and quirks, speak your needs clearly, have compassion for their problems and needs, never lie, trust them so that you don't need to control or always be present, and stay faithful in all things (physically, emotionally, and to every promise).
