From the First Anniversary to the Fiftieth

F

In today’s Seattle Times, marriage advice from seven siblings, all of whom have been married to the same husband or wife for fifty years.

  • Faith
  • Eat together
  • A lot of give and take
  • Family time
  • Stay in touch with close relatives
  • Humor
  • Good cooking
  • Accept each other’s idiosyncrasies

How do you manage that give and take? How do you accept each other’s idiosyncracies? How do you find the humor in tough situations, like the ones all of them have faced in recent years? Assume love, expect love, and look for third alternatives.
