The foundation of a happy marriage is honesty. Both spouses must be reliable, responsible, and resilient. A healthy marriage is a team effort. It takes hard work and selflessness. I find it interesting to read advice from marriage experts with many degrees and are on their third or fourth marriage. The purest knowledge and understanding we will find from good examples and experience. When you talk to couples that have been happily married for many years, you will find some commonalities and some differences. Every marriage is unique because it is made up of two individuals. That is one of the reasons why being married a long time can be so interesting and rewarding and should never become monotonous. Getting old together and still having fun is a reward that couples who have been married for many years celebrate.
I hope that the couples who read this book benefit from its experiences and wisdom. The sacred vows you made were not a condemnation, but if truly applied, you both will learn that they were a liberation. My wish is that you have a long and blessed life together!
Some marriages do not work out the first time—that’s just reality. The universal principles discussed in this book can help any relationship become happier and more rewarding. Don’t give up on love.
