What makes a marriage last?
It’s safe to say there’s not one formula to a lifetime of love, but one thing’s for sure — through thick and thin, there are millions of couples who have been with their partner for longer than they’ve been single. Some say intimacy is the key to success, while others credit their long marriage to a good sense of humor.
Instead of looking to psychologists or counselors for advice, we found the best secrets came from the people whose marriages have gone the distance and lasted up to 80 years. Find out what the best kept secrets are from the lovers themselves.
These couple’s secrets can remind you of what’s important — support, companionship and individuality.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to leading a successful marriage. In fact, we found that it was common for couples to go through incredibly tough times together, but they stuck by each other’s side through it all.
