Love gives a good chance for a successful and healthy marriage, but it’s never enough. Love is fundamental and central to the success of marriage, but it’s never enough. Love can take you to the Altar but it takes much more to sustain it. When we get into it, our weak tendencies are exposed amidst the different life challenges and changes that come our ways, which love alone may not be able to sustain in the long-run.
For instance in Eph. 5:22-23, Apostle Paul brings up a fundamental issue of wife’s submission to the husband, while the husband is requested to love his wife. I believe the reason why the wife is not asked to love her husband is rooted in Gen 3:16 i.e the wife is already “blessed” with longing (loving) the husband. This means love does not connote submission, a woman could love a man but not submit to him. This therefore brings up another key ingredient for marital success from the wife’s perspective – SUBMISSION.
Although love is a common factor in all successful marriages, but there are other key factors such as discipline, commitment and life-skills/emotions, sacrifice and submission etc. that are pivotal to the success of marriage. The need for all these “other factors” is subjective to individual marriage as no two marriages are the same.

Most of the people that say “Love is all you need” are secular people and do not really understand what love means. True love is shed abroad in our heart by the Holy Spirit Rom5:5. Like others have said, LOVE is not enough. For instance, love can not substitute knowledge. So, like the Holy Spirit admonished us through Peter there are many things to add to love.
2Peter1:5: But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, 6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control [a]perseverance, to perseverance godliness, 7 to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. 8 For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither [b]barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Love alone is not sufficient but the fruit of the spirit is vital for a successful marriage.
