10 Things I learned in 26 Years of Marriage



  1. I had more June Cleaver Claire Huxtable genes than I thought. Nothing like love to make you feel oddly domestic in ways you swore you’d never do.
  2. I don’t know where they got this from but I did not find that 2 can live a cheaply as one.
  3. People have financial personalities. Savers gotta save. Spenders … have to get with the program.
  4. A marriage will glide … for a while but sooner rather than later you have to put your thrusters back on before you lose too much altitude.
  5. A sense of humor is invaluable.
  6. You never get to stop talking about it.
  7. Marriage counselors should be a go-to-whenever event not a near-the-end- of –the- marriage event.
  8. At some point you and your partner will find yourselves hanging on for dear life trying to survive the kids.
  9. Number 8 can last a long time … just sayin’.
  10. You know you’ve got the right guy when the both of you forget your wedding anniversary and both of you think it’s funny.
