"One of the most important things in any relationship"
Many relationships have their faults and many relationships have only minor issues. Most relationships last much longer when the male and female can talk their problems out. When there is a problem the best thing to do is to understand where you and your lover stand on the issue. With this being said, you should understand what is truly needed to fix the problem. When you can compromise or come to an agreement then you both can make things workout a lot smoother than before. Every time there is a problem and come to an agreement you are able to become closer and learn from your mistakes. This will be the case for you and your lover. This is very important if you and your lover are in a serious relationship where you are either be in love or you have greater feelings for one another than just the usual infatuation that most people have in the beginning of most relationships. Be sure that you never let a problem become greater than the love/feelings you have for each other.
