    The secret?
    Separate bathrooms.
    Mystery is good.

    44 years here. I can say one thing and think another simultaneously. She can’t read my thoughts. Yet.

    21 this year for us.

    A few of y'all might remember we had some hard times a while back. Didn't think we'd make it thru.

    But, with God's grace and a helping of me actually paying attention to my wife - things are better than ever! Hope to get to uhlawpup's numbers and beyond.

    A double sink vanity helps. Too bad she can’t keep her **** on her side of the shower. Something about needing different shampoos for different hair days.

    A couple of things come to mind when I think about long term marriage.
    1) I’ve been told to marry your best friend. The problem with that is neither JD nor I are gay.
    2) I’ve also been told not to marry the prettiest girl at the party. You marry the girl who is yelling at the beer pong table because she’s losing.
    That girl is going to raise winners; and you want your kids to be winners.

    Marriage was the worst thing that I've ever done. Seven years of it was enough to realize that I never wanted to do that again!

    Been happily married for 34 years. At this point, if the marriage ended, I wouldn't remarry. As that stalwart proponent of the institution of marriage, Mick Jagger, said, "One marriage is enough for anybody".

    45 years and enjoying each other more than ever. She is truly my best friend. Yes, we have had our rough times but we stuck it out until it got really good.

    30 years this November, and incidentally, she did look a lot like Molly Ringwald. We're happy right now, but we will see as my health will steadily go down in the next few years. Now that will be the REAL test of our love.

    If you remember to thank her for teaching you how to put the toilet paper roll on correctly, you will have a smooth relationship!:D

    I've been married 25 years. My wife finishes my sentences about halfway through by starting her own. I finish her's with silence and the occasional "huh?"

    Was married to the first one for 32 years. I'm married to this one three years now. They all got snakes in their heads.
