    Re: Marriage

    Secret is having a wife that is nuts, mine is because she has been with me for 36years, 33 married. Things were a little rough at times, then the kids are grown and move out Now the real fun of life begins, GRANDKIDS!!! True retaliation for all the pains your kids caused. Spoil the hell out of them and send em home wired on sugar. Seriously, it all starts with being friends, if you don't truely like each other then it will not last. I chased her till she caught me!

        Re: Marriage

        I've been married to Liz for 10yrs and 5mos. I was a firefighter, she was an EMT. The minute i laid eyes on here, i knew she was going to be my wife...Funny part is i didnt talk to her until 4yrs after that.

        The successful part of it all is, we love each other, we take care of each othere, but most of all, we are best friends.

          My wife and I have been married 3 years 11 months. We met during our freshman year of college, and married after our masters. Now we've got a 2 year, 4 month old son, and an 8 month old daughter.

            54 years, 4 months, and 17 hours. Marriage is like a job--you have to work at it to keep it. You have to learn that like you job, not every part of it is super fun and like the saying goes "It's a dirty job, but somebody has to do it." Also, if your smart, you will remember the super fun part and forget the other.

              Re: Marriage

              I had stopped by my sisters office to repair the kitchen faucet. I saw her come down the stairs and whispered to my sister "who's the hottie in the green shimmering dress?"

              She had came down to see who the handsome plumber was in the kitchen

              My life was in turmoil when Anita and I met. She righted the ship and set me straight. Because of her I am a better man. Sometimes I forget that and have to remind myself.

              After 10 years of dating and 10 years of marriage I can't imagine what life would be without her. We missed out on having children (my fault) so I don't know who's going to take care of us when we get old

                I read a book called the "5 love languages" and that was the entire premise. Great book for anybody, married or not.

                    I'm sure the book is helpful. I think a running theme from most of the responses is to be thoughtful. So whether it's a good book, or some other source that makes us think instead of just acting and reacting our relationship will be better for it.

                          God puut my wife in my life at the perfect time, any sooner, and she would not have liked me.

                          we met on-line and had the mental attraction before the sexual one first, which is very important, and hard to get these days.

                          I am blessed, we are the right age for eachother, the right personality, we feed off eachother.

                          She is very creative and I am not.

                          Marriage is tough, but as long as you both are mature and work toghether, and don't let an argument go any longer then a few minutes past the silence part, everything works out great.

                          NO MARRIAGE IS PERFECT, but thats why you stay married for so many years, everyday is a lesson to learn and a lesson to give, you both get closer to eachother and understand more and more about eachother. compromise, compromise, compromise, don't act like imature kids (for us guy's)

                          She's a good wife, a great friend, and is going to be a great mother to our children.

                          A blessing indeed.

                            I've been married to my wife for 28 years and 8 months. One thing that helps in a marriage is talking. When you have a disagreement, calmly talk it over. When you have two people yelling and no one listening, nothing gets acomplished.
