How do keep the fire burning? How do manange all the family problems? Are you still sweet with each other? Do you still do the same things you do when you were in your first year of marriage? Give me some inputs, I want my married life to last forever.

Marriage is work !!!!!!! BUT it doesn't have to be hard as long as you value each other the same way you did when you first met !!!! It is all the little things that add up that make it all the worthwhile you know like Holding hands in public, that kiss on the cheek, the little notethat you gave him/her in the lunch bag or purse, holding the door open. Marriage is a blessing and only you can make it work the way you want it.

Honey, Why would I, or you for that matter, want to do the same thing for 10 years! Marriages are like life, they grow and change. My husband and I are as in love now as we were when we first married 16 years ago and first met over 30 years ago. We still play and have fun. The secret is to continue to say please and thank you and show appeciation for what your spouse does for you. When life is getting too busy and stressed, schedule a date; even if it's just a car ride together or a backwash in the shower. Leave little notes here and there for each other now and then, we still do that. Call the radio station and request your song on his/her birthday. Watch him play with the kids/or her rock the baby to sleep. Ok, I admit it, I miss the long country strolls and the weekend camp outs we used to do every summer but hey, we do other things now and still get in camping now and then with the boy scouts. Instead of a family vacation, now it's what we want to do, our vacation. He still reachs for and holds my hand in public. We have a romantic dinner every anniversary. And now and then we turn off the phone, lock the doors and just pay attention to each other. Communicate, treasure your spouse, and shrug off the little stuff. If something is festering, talk about it, heck cry about it if need, but don't scream and yell and blame him. He;'s just trying to get through life too, with you. Growing old together is wonderful, you'll love it!
