    Default require (again)

    Thanks for your help.

    A question remains. So, this sentence:

    " - A friendship requires a lot of respect FROM both sides " is wrong ?

    - A friendship requires both sides TO have a lot of respect ? Is tehere any other possibility ?

    I don't think of a friendship as having requirements. It is, after all, an intangible thing. How about:

    • For a friendship to be solid there must be mutual respect.


    You could also say meaningful instead of solid.

    What do you think?
