    Thirty-six years ago tomorrow, those crazy kids I call my parents ran off to Yuma, AZ and eloped. I feel really fortunate to have their example of a marriage built on love and trust. I hope someday (God willing), I can put their example to practice in my own marriage.

    If you could give a new couple only one piece of advice to making a relationship work, what would that be?

    Don't have children.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    There isn't one piece. That would be like me showing you a piece of a large puzzle and telling you that you cannot succeed in completing the puzzle without it. I would be right, of course, but so would everyone else who came forward with their particular piece.

    Me?.....
    1) A sense of humor
    2) A sense of fairness
    3) The right amount of patience


    In other words; lighten up; give the other guy a chance; and if all else fails, kick ass:)

    Separate bathrooms.
    It may sound glib, but I'm absolutely serious.

    Before you decide to make a smart, bitter, or provocative remark to your spouse, go do something else for 10 minutes. If you still feel like you need to ruin their day with sarcasm or some kind of passive-aggresive bullshit, do what you need to do.

    If you both have the same value system, 90% of marital discord comes from saying ugly things (even in jest). You can never un-ring that bell so you'd better be 100% certain that ugly or demeaning talk is going to result in a Candy Mountain unicorn fest 10 minutes later.

    No, no, I see some truth to this. I can't tell you how many times I've looked at my bathroom before and thought it's a good thing I'm single because I don't have room for another person's stuff in here. I guess I can clear out a cabinet for him if it's true love. :D
