  • Assuming someone had a true understanding of what love is. Unfortunately, I think very few people do. Trust is the most important thing in a relationship. If you consider trust to be an attribute of love, then yes. Other attributes of love include compassion, forgiveness, mercy, and grace. Love REQUIRES sacrifice. Without sacrifice, no one is truly compatible on an intimate level. Love is a powerful thing, but in common speak it has become hollow and meaningless.
  • No. You can love someone and still have incompatible goals in a relationship.
  • I agree with what the others said, you also need to have the ability to compromise and be able to communicate. It doesn't bode well for the relationship if you can't talk about things.
  • No. I remember reading Amy Tan's "Joy Luck Club" a few years ago; I can't remembe rthe precise quote, but one of the characters was getting relationship advice from an elderly aunt who told her "Love may be a very nice thing but it won't feed the children or keep the roof ove ryour head." A lot of problem relationships (Romeo & Juliet included) are a result of the "All you need is love" philosophy impressed on us by soppy movies. Love is a luxury that is so difficult to define that it's essentially meaningless anyway. If we have mutual trust, accountability, sexual attraction, common interests and goals, security, honesty, dependability, friendship- what does "love" (whatever that is) really add to the equation anyway? 99% of what people call love is either a myth or an illusion. the 1% feels good when times are good, but its not enough to keep you going when times get tough.
  • You can love someone but it does not mean that person is right for you
  • All ya need is love.
  • i think if your truely in love you wont have that problem
  • Love - how do one define LOVE? I think that love is the main instrument that holds a relationship together but consists out of several departments, should one lack of any one - love would not be enough - but should there be enough of each of the things that builds love (like trust, respect, loyalty and faith) then yes love could be enough. unfortunately in this world there are very few people who knows the meaning of love, people use love as an excuse for obsession and abuse. a relationship requires allot of work and communication from both parties.
  • when there is love from both sides then everything is possible
  • Unfortunately no. you need two minds to agree with everything so i would say no. Everytime you think of how much you love your partner think that you don't share the same ammounts of love to each other.Usualy the ones who worry more are the ones who are in a big trouble cause their love is bigger. Love is a great feeling to have,but what does it do when you're the only one who has it anyway? :/
  • relationship is like making a building you need to put and mix proper stuff in it to make it strong and beautiful, lack or less of one material will make it collapse with just one strong hit of anything and so with relationship if one of you are lacking or has a less trust, love, care, understanding etc etc your relationship will certainly go in chaos and eventually will collapse sooner or later.
  • Its a good start
  • It better be. Everything else sucks.
  • No - it's just one of many things that make successful relationships.
  • Nope. Money.
  • No, Love is not enough..great start but without respect and honesty and and and and...etc..its not enough.
  • not really but its an intergral part of it ,it take love ,trust,patience to make a relationship to work
  • I think it is a big component for a relationship. I am just glad nobody said money was important. Money is evil.
  • NO!! You need respect, trust, companionship, stability, and reliablity, good communication, honesty, and compassion for the others feelings. You need to be there for each other and you need to work for love!! A good poem to describe love would be this: I want it to be inconvenient, I want to sacrifice my life for it. I want the kind of love that wakes me up at 3am. I want love that hurts, love that I have to work for. I want love that tests me. I want the kind of love that is hard to find, and hard to keep and never easy. I want the kind of love where you get hurt. I want love that makes me cry. I want to hold on to it even if it takes me through my worst nightmare. But most of all I want love that is worth it!! Like the poem said love should not come easy and love should be something that you have to work for in a relationship because if you don't it won't be strong! The kind of love described here is a very strong love, a love that will never die no matter what they go through! There will always be tough times through a relationship and you have to make sure that your love is strong enough to make it through those. And as was said before love doesn't pay the bills, love doesn't keep a roof over your head, and love doesn't put food on the table, or clothes on your back!! You have to take all of these things into consideration!!
  • Love is a needed foundation. It is what you build your relationship ON. But, NO, love is just one part, and is far from enough.
  • Love is the most important, but a relationship takes so much more. The divorce rate wouldn't be so high if Love is all it took.
  • Unfortunatley, no, you need more then Love to make a relationship work. You need understanding, trust, empathy, fidelity, respect, responsability, maturity, sacrafice and whole list of other things to make a relationship truely work. And those things are hard to come by in this day and age.
  • I am beginning to wonder that myself. I feel emotionally isolated from my boyfriend a lot of the time. I know he is a quiet, shy person but one year later I wish he would share more of his feelings and thoughts with me. Put it this way, if he never learns to open up, this just isn't going to work. All of these problems have nothing to do with the fact that I love him deeply. Although I realise that I love him for who he is, I wish he could make some changes for the two of us.
  • No. You cant just rely on love in a relationship. You need trust and you need to care for eachother. You need to be able to communicate with eachother properly and be able to rely on eachother when your both in need of help.
  • I think that would depend on you're definition of love. If you practice this definition of love then it will be enough. "4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails." 1Co 13:4-8
  • No. This is why there is so much divorce. People think that love is enough. But you have to have respect, trust, an be able to work through things. People are people, we're going to do stuff that's wrong. But we have to be able to be mature enough to work through the problems instead of running away and divorcing because they thought THEY were going to beat 100% of all odds and be the Cinderella fairy tale. You HAVE to put forth more to get more out of it.
  • No it isn't.
  • i used to think so.
  • No, but the reasons you love someone should be the cornerstone of a good relationship. Sometimes love does need a little help...many times I find people forget to appreciate the reasons why you fell in love or you fall in love with the image that person is projecting at the time. People change and so does love.

  • NO...not just love.
  • No, it just gets it started for the first year, then real love is supposed to take over and make big things happen not just in, but outside the bedroom.
  • Love is not enough
  • It doesn't pay the rent.
  • No it takes a whole bunch more than that to keep a relationship or marriage together.
  • Not always. It can help to keep things together in tough times but in the end, sometimes it is not enough to keep things together.
  • I don't think so.... Love can be ripped asunder by negative behaviors...that will crumble it to the dirt.. Unless, of course, one is committed to CODEPENDENCY! and Passive/Aggressive behaviors..that cause a person to believe that they MUST stick together...regardless of how deep the misery becomes!
  • It is what makes you happy
  • No I wish it were. :(
  • Unfortunately NO
  • if you have enough love it can over come most things ...but a little common sense and logic go a long way as well
  • No, love does not conquer all... unfortunately.
  • The foundation of our relationship cinsists of communication, mutual respect, trust, companionship, compassion, and love is just one part of the entire beautiful experience.
  • Love is more than enough. My girlfriend and myself were going through hard times in our relationship due to the fact that we are now living in two different countries very far away... distance relationship as they say. The main problem was trust issues. Now one might say "therefore love is not enough and you also need trust", and that would be partly true but the truth is, only my love for her made me start searching within myself, and on google too, for the reasons of my jealousy and be able to beat this demon. All that was needed was for her to love me truly and for me to love her truly. Love is enough and it drags the rest of what's needed in a relationship along with it. Of course, love needs to be nurtured, but as long as there is love between two persons, it is all that is needed.
  • cynics! you forget what love is. love is patience, love is respect, love is knowing you've got to fight for the other things to make it all work so you don't lose love, cause without love, everything else is meaningless. Love is what gives us humanity and hope. wed are nothing without love. love is all you need and all you need is love. love is enough
  • Nope. I learned that in my marriage. it didn't matter how much we loved each other we still could not solved our problems partly because we were inherently different in personality and outlook about what a marriage is. I felt that it requires work and my ex said 'no', its just there - checkmate!!!
  • No. It takes a lot of hard work.
  • just look at romeo and juliet lmao
  • I'm in a place where I don
