Love Always; Laugh Often; Lean on each other; Learn to "Let stuff go"
Love Always; Laugh Often; Lean on each other; Learn to "Let stuff go"


  1. A candlelight dinner hurts your eyes and makes it difficult to see your food.
  2. Sharing the couch means he’s at one end and you’re at the other.
  3. Going for a walk in the snow isn’t romantic, it’s cold.
  4. Going for a walk in the summer makes you sweat and sweat, when you are past age 40, is not attractive. (Oh, c’mon, for some of you, well....someone had to say it.)
  5. After all these years, he still whispers three little words…“Are you awake?” Different three little words, but three little words, nevertheless.
  6. In the beginning of your relationship, you can live on love; after that…size DOES matter; the size of your house, the size of your car and most important……..the size of your closets.
  7. Conflict resolution, he concedes.
  8. Watch news at nine because you can’t stay awake until 10.
  9. Dinner out and a movie means only one thing…it’s your anniversary.
  10. Whispering sweet nothings in your ear is pointless when the other person keeps saying…what?
  11. Compromise is required. So what if he loses his hair and you gain weight? Compromise….have two thin kids with hair, we did.

After 27 years of marriage, I have had people ask, "what's your secret?" It’s simple, live by the 4 L’s.

  • Love always
  • Laugh often
  • Lean on each other in good times and in bad
  • Learn- to “let it go!” In the great big world of “stuff that can mess up your day,” the issue is probably not worth the effort.

One last tip for a healthier marriage. If your partner snores, do NOT pinch the nose closed!
