K is Keys to a Good Marriage

My parents have been married for 52 and 1/2 years, so I'm pretty sure that counts as being committed for the long haul.  This next question that my father  answered in his legacy book  is a noble set of points to remember for anyone who wants to stay happily married.


Record your ideas here for what it takes for a husband and wife to maintain a healthy marriage.

1.  Maintain a good sense of humor.
2.  Consider first the needs of the other.  In so doing yours are most apt to be met.
3   Be patient.  Time cures a lot of ills.
4.  Maintain sexual fidelity.
5.  Live within your financial means.
6.  Give each other time for non-mutual interests.  Guys need time for guy things and ladies need time for lady things.

Such a correct list. Right now, #3 is my struggle.

Short, sweet, and full of truth! We just try to make it difficult. :o))) I guess we never stop working at marriage and when we do, we'd likely be in trouble. Good post!

It is no wonder they have been married for more than 50 years. Great list!
