Re: The Long Term Success in Marriage Section

Chris: Thank you for this, and thank you to the moderators of this site. I have been lurking for a while and am finally going to post. I am a former SI member, and found that the philosophy or philosophies expressed do not always mesh with my own. From my perspective, and hopefully my ever loving wife's perspective, we have overcome a literal ton of S**T to get to where we are today. We have endured parents that disapproved of our marriage, and sought to break us up. We have endured a business failure. We have endured infidelity (my own). We have endured a separation. We have endured bad marriage counselling. We have endured a revenge affair. We have endured gigantic medical issues. We have endured! We have also been together for 42 years and married for 39. We are in a good place now, after having watched friends and family turn away from their spouses when they become empty nesters, we made a conscious decision to NOT fall into the myriad of traps. We committed to each other and have used all of the things that we have learned along the way. If anyone wants to ask, I am happy to post. To those of you who wonder if marriages survive and flourish under horrible circumstances, the answer is, they do. Thanks

I knew an old man who lived into his 90s with his wife. On their 70th wedding anniversary someone asked him what the key to such a long marriage was. Not dying he said!
