Learn what is non-negotiable and what can be compromised. Regularly spend time apart from each other. Above all, trust; if that goes all else is an illusion.
pick your battles
Compromise and being able to at least try to see things from another’s point of view. Good sex. Allowing each other to play to their strengths and act as a team when necessary.

oh boy... all my relationship ended before a year...
A strong initial attraction never hurts!, then shared values and good communication.
Then figure out what love is to your partner and make an effort to do those things (is it flowers? Is it taking care of housework? cooking meals? Cuddling? Spontaneous trips?). A little extra effort goes a long way, and ideally your partner wants to do the same for you. Then presto, a great lasting relationship.
You really need those first things though. If you don't share values, especially with respect to money, family, religion, etc. You're doomed. That conflict wont go away.
No thing last forever, but it's alright.
"Pick your battles"!
...Also, battle. Don't be afraid to have an argument. Like a festering post-spicy food rumbling down below, shit's better out than in.
... Side chicks?
Honesty and talking.
Friends can become best friends can become lovers can become life partners. The combination is infinite but everyone has issues and different ways of thinking - talking off issues and not suffering in silence is key to everything.
Honesty, selflessness, patience and understanding.
Learn how to resolve your conflicts. It's not about 'winning' the argument but finding the right solution.
Also, have things (hobbies, sports, friends) that are your own and don't include your partner.
Finally, the number one rule - NEVER share a social media account. If you do your relationship is already doomed and you look like cunts.
