Typically once I inform those that John and I’ve been married for 17 years now, they exclaim in shock, “What, did you get married whenever you have been twelve?!” After which we giggle and giggle till I get up and cry a bit of.
The instances I am not dreaming, although, folks typically ask what our “secret” is. I assume they imply the key to a contented marriage, and never that factor that occurred on the truthful, as a result of how would they find out about that?
So. The key to a contented marriage?
ROMANTICAL TYPE WORDS AND STUFF.
Yep, nothing bolsters a relationship greater than eloquently whispered…um…whispers of affection.
What’s extra, this type of mushiness is not simply on your weeding day!
Now, admittedly, John is loads higher at this than I’m, however I’ve discovered to comply with his lead and attempt to say one thing romantical each single day.
I do know it may be exhausting for you naturally romantic chatterboxes to know us extra silent and stoic sorts, however the reality is usually we simply do not know the right way to specific what we’re feeling.
And different instances you may have to chop us a bit of slack as a result of, hey, at the least we’re making an attempt.

However actually, I am unable to stress this one level sufficient:
And if you wish to maintain your partner on his or her toes, strive celebrating your subsequent anniversary like this:
Not that *I* would ever do such a factor, after all. No, I want to put in writing John heartfelt missives of the sentiments my coronary heart feels. Sort of like this bakery’s supply field:
[turning on slow, sultry beat]

John, sweetie? There isn’t a want motive. [draping self over piano] You fall – you FALL! – in love with my freedom. [raising roof] HEE-HEE! So open that window, child – sure, OPEN IT! In order that the soul of my soul and your soul and our souls – oh sure – [sliding to front of stage on knees] embracing you. [biting lip] Unnng. Yeah, boy. UH.
