How long have you bin together with you sweat heart?
Yesterday it was 24 years for my sweat heart and I, but it seems like just yesterday that we were introduced to one another.
Yes we've had our good times and our bad through the years. I'm not saying it's all bin peach's and cream by no means.
A few thing's we've learned over the years is to let the little things go, laugh at each other, don't jump on each others back as soon as they've walked in the door after a hard days work. After all there isn't a saddle on our backs, so stay off of it. Give each other a chance to say hi how was your day before you tell them about the bad things that might have happened that day. Really listen to what the other is saying when they answer that question. Don't just sit there thinking the hole time the other is telling you about they're day, what you're going to say the minute the close there mouth. Listen with your ears open and your mouth shout. When we get down about not having enough money for something we try to remember and to remind the other, that no matter how bad things might seem for us right now, someone somewhere in the world has it a lot hard then we do. But most of all respect each other for who they are and what they do, not all for you but for everyone in your family. Remember why you fell in love with that person to begin with. Sometime a big hug can be worth a thousand words. Good luck to all of you no matter who your honey is, or how long you've bin together.

I met my sweetheart in the summer of 2003. We played beach volleyball together. He was the best player on the team, I was the worst. My roommate at the time was a good friend of his. She saw that there was chemistry there and was upset about it. Not because she was interested in him (she denied many times), but because he was her friend first. I actually didn't see or talk to him for 6 months because she made such a big deal about it. Since she was my roommate, I wanted to keep the peace even though I thought it was childish.

Winter 2004, he invited a bunch of friends over for paella night at his place including me and my roommate. She didn't go because I was going. At that point I realized how silly the whole thing was and that if we wanted to spend time together we should. We started dating in spring 2004 and were married one year later.

6 years later, I'm glad I went with my instincts. I'm not friends with my old roommate any more.

Excellent points! on Sep 28, 2010 @ 03:43 pm

Reading your post Takoda, I have to say I agree with all of your very thoughtful points and tips for a good marriage. I have been with my husband for 20 years now (married for 15) and we rarely fight, mostly because we do follow what you said above and respect each other. I especially think about what I say to him FIRST (and I know he does too) because you can NEVER take it back and it can really be harmful to the marriage. Even things said in a joking or teasing manner can sometimes be too much. Take a second or two to cool down and think before you say it, it'll save you alot of heartache.
