Message from Martha about her Project:

Hi, My name is Martha Giffen and I've been married since 1978. Happily! Is it always easy? Not on your life! Can it be fun and exciting and sustainable?? I'm convinced the answer is YES! Come along as I write about what works, what doesn't, and everything in between!

I've been married since 1978. Happily.

With one out of four marriages ending in divorce, I have decided to spill the beans on how to stay married. At least, how I've managed to stay married!

This site will be devoted to helping you sustain a loving relationship for the "ever-after" part!
