An aside topic to the "how long married...."
What's the secret to staying married together, as the vows state - "til death do us part""
I say "you cannot take things said or done personally".
My wife says " communication" and don't lie"
What do you say is the secret to staying married?

I've been married 26 years...our secret...its a partnership meaning we BOTH have to work to make a living, we make spending decisions together, and we try to comminicate about everthing as clearly as possible...we have to work to put the others needs in front of our own...and fidelity is a key

The wife and I are still talking about this. It takes a long time to really know your wife or husband. More than ten years, that's what we came up with as a comfort point.
One other thing we both agree and strongly stress - never, ever hit each other, no matter what!

compromise. thats it. sooner or later one party wants something the other doesn't. you have to compromise.
