    A few sessions of couple's counseling with a licensed marriage therapist is the secret. Every marriage has serious problems can cannot be solved by the couple alone.

    Learning to accept and live with certain faults, knowing when to have your own space and time, putting aside your pride, compromise, and a whole lot of other things.  Sometimes this comes naturally and sometimes it takes work and patience smile

    I didn't marry my high school sweetheart sad
    So I would have to hunt him down.... states away, convince him to leave his wife & kids... yeah, I'm thinking not such a great plan... oh well, (sigh)

    As for just staying married - easy, never sign divorce papers... hahaha

    Communication, seriously.  Good communication is key to any long lasting, happy relationship.  Make sure both of you are getting your needs met, both of you feel loved, appreciated, and respected.

    Being adaptable, you'll go through lots of changes together. Good communication. Giving each other space to see friends or have alone time. Not bearing grudges. Supporting each other. Having fun together. Buying a dishwasher. Having more than one television. Smiling. Making them feel important, because they are. The other secret...now, that would be telling!

    I married my highschool sweetheart. We have been together for 20 years and married for 18. In our case, I think that recognizing our shortcomings and letting each other grow at our own pace was key. Compassion, understanding and above all love.
