The love compatibility factor is critically important to all successful loving relationships. It is our profound belief based on 25+ years of research on love and marriage that seven core values make up the love compatibility necessary to have a lasting and successful relationship or marriage.

If you and the one you love truly believe in these Seven Core Values of a Loving Relationship you are well on your way to love compatibility:

We are committed to always putting each other first in our relationship with each other.

We are committed to democracy in our relationship.

We are committed to ensuring our mutual happiness.

We value absolute trustworthiness and integrity in our relationship with each other.

We are committed to caring and unconditional love for each other.

We are committed to being mutually respectful towards each other.

We value our mutual sense of responsibility for each other.

There can be no equivocation when it comes to these core love compatibility values. Discuss these with the one you love today. Compatibility when it comes to love is required in all successful relationships. Does yours measure up?
