What's Your Secret?

Yesterday, a lovely woman announced that it was her 40th wedding anniversary. I asked her the same question I ask anyone with such similar longevity in their marriage, "What's your secret."

She smiled and raised her index finger, as if announcing a major point. "Marry a good man."

A couple hours later I ran into her husband and asked him the same question.
"Just marry a great woman," he said.
"She said the same about you."
"Well," he said, "I got the better end of the bargain."

So what about you married types? What's your secret?

So I'm no expert being married, but I've found that the best thing I've done is to marry a man who knows how to be happy.

Our marriage is the most blissful when I know how to be happy too.

There's a lot that goes into being truly happy, of course, but more and more, I've come to see that happiness in marriage is really as simple as having happiness as individuals and being able to share that and enhance it for the other person.
