Q Are you curious to know the secret of growing old and happy together in a thriving and intimate marriage?

I had the wonderful opportunity to interview an older couple who had loved each other well for 62 years!  I asked what their secret was.  As they held hands, with a twinkle in the husband’s eye, he responded, “Make sure you pick a good one.”  I was both shocked and disappointed.  I wanted to glean nuggets of wisdom from this amazing relationship that had weathered many of life’s storms with a radiating love.  I dug a little deeper and discovered some positive attitudes, healthy habits and cultivated character traits that confirmed my original hypothesis:  Healthy marriages aren’t just found–they are also forged.
