    • My hubby and I will be celebrating 11 years this coming November, and to tell the truth it hasn’t always been a bed of roses for our relationship we had to get through the tough times and learn to compromise with each other and learn that neither of us are perfect and that we all make mistakes, we love each other and are determined to be together happy till death, so we have learned to talk things out and not take the other for granted and to listen with an opened mind and not be so judgemental toward each other and to love and respect each other no matter what whether we agree or disagree on things that are normal in a relationship it takes hard work and determination to make any relationship work and we have vowed to do just that WORK AT IT! estatic

    • This year we will be celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary.  Donot be fooled marriage is hard work.  I can say I have been truly blessed and have enjoyed my years.  Yes, we had our ups and downs but the journey to here has been very good.  For me being respectful is so important, we strived not to take each other for granted.  We have maintained our Friday night family time even though it is just hubbie and I now.  We keep our date time.  We have kept it honest with each other. Most of all we have the love for each other.

    • This year we will celebrate 19 years of not always wonderful but definitely interesting years. Like both ladies already mentioned it takes work and being committed to making it work
      Now for us we are each others second marriage and hindsight is helpful when it comes to making 2nd ones work.

    • My husband and I will be celebrating our 20 year anniversary in May.  I agree with the ladies above, marriage takes a lot of work.  It’s easy to take for granted the person you feel most safe with. We often treat our spouses worse than anyone else because we know they will still be there for us.  I have tried really hard not to do this.  There’s no way we‘re going to get along all the time, but he is my best friend, and the person I want to be with most.  I try to remind myself, and him of this often.

    • We are going on 22 yrs this Nov. We did live together 2 years before marriage. We still do things for each other, support each other, forgive the little mistakes. We had a rough time of it early on but much better now since we have both chilled out happy

      Trust, respect, compassion, affection equals long lasting love.

    • We will be married 27 years in October.  As all the ladies mentioned, it takes a lot of hard work and always give and take on both spouse’s parts.  In our case..companionship, loyalty, responsibility, truth, communication are key to us being together this long.

      and Friday night date night..(I am the funny one in the family).estatic

    • We will have been married 16 years this August.  It takes a lot of work and communication to keep the marriage going.  Also, we’ve been through some really tough times that I think has made our marriage stronger like my husband’s extended unemployment, death of my parents, and issues with his mom to name a few.  A lot has to do with being there for each other through good times and in bad times.

    • Don’t EVER let your child/children come between you and your spouse. And if you don’t have any, think before you do. Having children changes everything!
