We have been on a 40 year Honeymoon.
These are some of our secrets of a long marriage. (in no particular order)
Get to know the person before marriage so you will not be surprised how they react when angry, exhausted, ... Everyone wears a mask when dating and it is best to see below it before walking down the aisle. If you really want to know who a person is take them on a very long hike in hot humid weather. Nothing melts a mask like being uncomfortable along with exhaustion.
Marriage, like any relationship, needs work, forgiveness, and understanding.
We remember that we are not perfect and never will be but love each others flaws too.
People change and it is best when a couple changes together.
Give 100% to the other with no expectations. If you both do this you will never feel unloved.
Say "I love you".
Make love frequently.
Speak words of love and affection to each other.
