Our friends Larry and Charlotte had this to say about their secrets to a happy marriage:

“We Made a Commitment, and We’ll See This Through”

We always felt like communication was the key, but recently we encountered a situation where we were communicating but seeing it from two totally different angles. At times like that you have to fall back on your commitment--"I said 'I do' and I will"--and then let God work it out.
We’re taught not to let the sun go down on our wrath, but sometimes we don’t do that. We might not go to bed screaming as we pull up the covers, but the screams are inside. However, we say, “We don’t have the answer, but we know Someone who does.” Sometimes couples think, "The grass is greener on the other side," but when they get there, they see the bare spots they couldn’t see before. Most divorced couples look back and wish they’d worked it out with their first partners.
Second, have a sense of humor. Our family laughs a lot. Humor relieves tenseness and anxieties.
Third, keep the flame burning by doing thoughtful things for each other.
