Today is my mom’s 49th wedding anniversary. Tomorrow will be my dad’s 49th wedding anniversary. Wondering why they celebrate separately? Well, it’s a funny story.
When asked what the secret to a long and happy marriage was, they said this.
Mom: Tolerance & patience are key; as is accepting their flaws as well as your own and don’t try to change your partner. They are who they are. Oh, and a good sense of humor.
According to my dad, there are two secrets.
1) Don’t disagree with your wife.
2) Marriage is like a soccer contract. You don’t assume it’s forever, you renew yearly.
What he means by that is that you don’t take your spouse for granted & continue to make an effort.
Happy Anniversary you two!!!!
