We recently came across an article on the Huffington Post about a couple that has been together for 73 years and they give credit to their morning routine of eating pancakes together…yes pancakes, that delicious breakfast treat! (Article: Robert and Doris Moody, Couple Married 73 Years, Eat Pancakes Every Day) This got us thinking, every couple is completely unique and has their own way of keeping their marriage strong and happy, What works best for you?
With a little research, we have found some common “keys to happiness” among long-term married couples:
- Saying “please” and “thank you”, even for the smallest things;
- Enjoy one another’s company and make it a priority to spend time together;
- Avoid financial stress by living within your means as a family;
- Be kind;
- Don’t sweat the small stuff;
- Be able to forgive and let things go;
- Always be respectful;
- Laugh often!
