24 years of married bliss
Today is our 24 years' wedding anniversary.
We met a couple of days before Valentine's Day, 1981. I was a sweet, innocent student nurse and he was...drunk. I chased him around for two weeks until he finally got the hint.
We bought a house together in September 1984 and ten months later got married in the Salisbury Registry Office, England.
My daughter once asked me what the secret was to a happy marriage...my answer was and still is that you must never think you're going to change your partner. If there are things about him or her that you want to change, then maybe that person is not the person for you. On the other hand, if you can live with that person faults and all, then you're on to a good thing.
What are your tips for a happy and long relationship?
