When we talk with young couples about marriage we tell them our three secrets to a happy marriage:
- Take turns loving each other "more". On odd days my husband loves me more. On even days I love him more. On special days like birthdays or anniversaries, we love each other equal.
- No matter how far apart we are (hubby travels 150,000 miles a year) we always tell each good night and say I love you.
- We celebrate being married every 100 days. Yup, you read that right-every 100 days we celebrate being married. Sometimes we go out for special dinner, sometimes we buy a special item for the house. If it's an annivesary for a 1,000 day milestone we often go away for a long weekend.
How do you celebrate being married or in a committed relationship?
