      1. Make the right choice of husband/wife;
      2. Respect your choice;
      3. Understand that nobody is perfect;
      4. Know what you want.

      Simple: (1) Trust 100% (2) Honesty and (3) Communication.

      It's most likely that if you have a couple and they get married, then if their relationship was built on friendship first, then it shall be able to last through anything.

      If their relationship didn't have a friendship before it started, then it's likely to end up in divorce court, within about 10 years.

      Just a thought. big_smile

    Arguing fairly seems fundamental.Never demean your spouse.My dad gave my this advise at my wedding many many years ago unfortunately her dad didn't give her the same advise and the marriage ended.Afterwords he told me"In marriage you can be right or you can be happy so don't disagree unless its Really important",makes sense to me.If I ever find a woman who can Tolerate me I will remember his advise,His marriage lasted fifty two years and was full of joy and passion till the day he died.

    Like each other when you are fully clothed. If the relationship is based on sex or money than you are doomed.

      I agree with fishtiger58, liking your partner is fundamental, and often is more critical than loving them.

    It is almost impossible for some time after the honey moon is over, persevere and you will succeed.

    If I had to pick just one thing it would be that you should never go to bed angry at one another.

    My wife and I promised each other that on our wedding day and always stuck by it and we are very happily married after 21 years,

    Pick someone who shares your values. 
    Lighten up. 
    Fight fairly. 
    Like each other.
    Be reliable. 
    Delete the "D" word from your vocabulary.

    21 years of marriage - lots of love, hard work, respect, give and take...there are a multitude of things that make it work, don't ever think it will be easy 100% of the time.
