How to Stay Married Forever: Advice from the Experts

My paternal grandparents, circa 1945

I love senior citizens. In my family, we live long and keep our elders involved in everything we do. That’s how I learned that if you sit down with someone about 75 years or older, you’re bound to hear some great stories and glean tons of good advice.

One of my favorite things to do is ask both men and women who have been married for 50+ years what the secrets to a great relationship are. These are the experts after all. They’ve stayed married through thick and thin. Here are some of the best quotes, culled over the past few years:

Always say, “Yes, Dear”

Let your spouse be who they are

Allow your spouse to chase their dreams, and support them in it

Never go to bed angry

“If Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy”

Hug and kiss each other every day

Weather the storms together

Be loving and kind, always


If you’re going to have a fuss, say what you gotta say, go outside and get some air, and move on.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? Let us know!

  1. I thought I would try something more classy and vintage looking from thePanerai watches for sale collection this time. Something you could gift your father for his birthday or for some anniversary. I have settled for the Replica Panerai watchesas I think it has just the right amount of simplicity and charm to make any older man proud.It is a minimalist looking watch but still has a lot going on for it. Its charm is quite subtle and it would take a keen and experienced eye to discern just how marvelous this Replica Panerai Watches is. Replica Panerai Watches It looks like something passed down from an older generation. There are a number of wholesale designer Valentino handbags and purses for sale today that can give you the quality of a top fashion bag but at much less of a price than the original piece costs.
