I don't pretend to know what makes a happy marriage.
However after 37 years, I would say that it really does have a lot to do with
(a) picking the right person; and
(b) a lot of hard work!
I also think these 3 littles tips from Drs Mehmet Oz and Michael Roizen
make a lot of sense.
- Spend lots of time alone together. Make time to do things as a couple, not just as a family. It's crucial for rekindling love and affection.
- When things get tense, tap your sense of humor. Conflicts are inevitable in any marriage, but if you remember to laugh about them, it helps you work through the tension and reconnect
- Talk in bed. You might think that's the second-best thing you can do there. But just talking every night in that quiet, intimate setting allows you to bond even more deeply.
Good to be reminded.
Happy Valentines Day.
