How to Enjoy Being Married for 80 Years

H

Wishing a happy 80th anniversary today to Clyde and Marie Barnes, and thank to Salt Lake’s Channle 5, KSL-TV, for letting us know what Marie says is the secret to their success.

“We just try to love what the other one does and do it together. If he suggests something, I try to go along with it. And if I suggest something, he seems to do the same.”

Sounds to me like Marie listens to Clyde’s suggestions as if he still loves her and wants the best for her, and vice versa. It’s a great way to live.
KSL-TV adds

They also say you can’t forget the second staple of a successful marriage: a sense of humor.

That’s what Mark Gungor says, too. He’s worth checking out. So is his Flag Page.
