Couples always evolve so does the intimacy in relationship. Some get a deeper connection and some others intimacy fades away.
Communication is another key predictor to lasting relationships.

Relationship suffers when one or both partners are contempt in communication. Couples are critical, sarcastic and judgmental to their partner. They do not separate the issue from the person.
More than partners you are friends, bestfriends. If this is the case you may have a lasting relationship.
A good friend bring the best out of you. Does your partner make you feel this way?

All couples engage in fight sometimes. Successful ones have the ability to resolve the issue, forgive and move on in their relationship.
6. Handling challenges.
Yep, when a challenge is throwing at one of you it might feel as a unwanted surprise. Tough times could be the test to your relationship. Are you here just to enjoy good times or to share the bad times too. It either brings couples close together for a life time or can put you a world apart ftom one another.
