Are you curious as to the secret of marital longevity, so you can apply it to your own relationship? In 12 Misconceptions About Romantic Relationships I wrote that if people are happy, they want their relationships to last forever. By reading this post, I am hopeful that you will discover how to achieve that fairy tale ending.
I have spent the past several weeks doing research. I interviewed couples that I considered to have a lengthy marriage. In this post, you will get many secrets to marital longevity, even more than 15 because in most cases the spouses disagreed with each other as to what the secret is.
