If you've been married successfully for over 20 years what is your secret?
My definition of success is that know what you know now would you do it all over again.
I believe it is the tolerance level in marriage between both partners. In almost all marriages, there will be ups and downs, and being too critical over one's faults may lead to an irreversible damage to the relationship, if too hurtful remarks are made. Of course, one has to try very hard to be faithful to the other, as this is one of the main causes of the breakup. Alot of other factors also come into play, and maybe difficult to name them all here as an answer.
Telltale says it well for me. I think what is required also is a respect for the marriage commitment, which must be founded in an unselfish love for the other (only done with God's enablement). Unselfish commitment, honor, respect, etc.
