Question: What makes my marriage successful and without fighting, arguing or disagreeing is... "Communication" we talk about everything and anything. If we feel we have a difference on something we talk it out and work out ways to have a little of both of our ideas work. We don't keep things from each other. "Trust" We both trust each other completely and have no reason to doubt the others words or actions. "Love" Love and loving each other with out doubt, regret and knowing that love holds the communication and trust together.. All 3 of these have made my marriage as great as it is. In all my life I have never met anyone that has ever made me feel so comfortable and safe and loved and cared for. What makes your marriage strong and successful everyday? Great information Natalie. No marriage is ever perfect, not even mine as good as it is. I've had a few people not belive that in 3 years we have never had a fight or argument. We can disagree but talking it out works great and communication makes living together and being happy so much easier and fun.. Great answers everyone.. To be honest when I met my husband it took alot to get use to because he is so kind and gentle and easy to get along with. I told him that I wasnt use to not being told what to do when to do it and how and where to do it, guess I was use to being in controlling relationships and being the controlled one, that I wasnt used to such kindness that he showed me. I was in a couple of abusive relationships and really wasnt use to being treated so well. I asked myself outloud what did i do to deserve this and him, he overheard me and said.. because you truly deserve it. For once I was completely speechless. He said something to me that no one ever said before.. "I deserved it ". I still pinch myself to make sure im not dreaming that hes real and as good to me as he is.. and everytime I pinch myself I feel it lol

in an intimate relationship class I took in the psych dept of college, I learned that love is made up of 3 things: lust, intimacy, & commitment. Not all have an equal effect on a relationship, and the amount of each is constantly changing. ROMANCE or lust is about attraction, romance, and the "butterflies". It's strongest in the beginning of relationships. INTIMACY is about how well you know your partner, that they're your best friend COMMITMENT is about sticking with each other even when times are hard. Committed couples don't think about breaking up when times are rough, or during arguments. . . couples that play together, stay together! there's actually been research on this. doing novel activities with your partner keeps love strong. There did an experiment where they separated couples into 2 groups. Group A had their ankles & wrists tied to their partner while completing an obstacle course, while group B slowly rolled a ball back & forth. Afterwards, the couples had to plan a vacation. Couples in group A reported greater marital satisfaction, & talked to each other nicer & were more likely to compromise than group B. . . People today don't realize that relationships TAKE WORK. they think true love is perfect, and any disagreements is a sign they aren't meant for each other, so they break up. . . the most important thing is: YOUR PARTER SHOULD BE YOUR BEST FRIEND!

Jill Originally Answered: What makes GOPers think that they can boycott companies that are anti - "gay marriage"?
The thing is, this is all really predictable. Any business owner who opens his big mouth about ANY political issue has a lot to answer for to his investors and his employees when the business inevitably tanks when half the country boycotts it. Keep your political opinions out of the workplace - that basic rule of courtesy (and not being a giant D-bag) only gets more important as you move up the ladder. Any business that's getting boycotted over ANY political issue, left or right, deserves it - and whoever's responsible should resign out of respect for all the other people in the company who have to suffer for it.

I guess friendship and love. Just like your best friend you dont get along all the time or even have the same views, but as long as at the end of the day you still have love then you will be together for a long time.

Brandi Originally Answered: When singles can go to the sperm bank and marriage is no longer necessary, shouldn't we preserve marriage by?
Being able to marry should NOT be put up for a vote by anyone. Love is where the heart is and not written in some law. That marriage piece of paper has more to it then just being married. Insurance and other factors are at stake too. Like being able to see your partner in the hospital when they are VERY ill or near death. That is for family members only & if a gay couple are not legally married their partner can't visit them. How would you like to be very ill or near death & not beable to see the person you care about the most in life? This issue goes way beyond marriage & sperm banks.
