Real couples' secrets for keeping the romance alive, the anger at bay and the laughs rolling in
Take date nights seriously
Lots of couples have regular date nights, but we have rules for ours: 1) We don't talk about our (four) kids, but instead about our goals for the future, how things are going at our jobs - all the things that made us fall in love in the first place. 2) We don't cancel. My husband has been known to stand up in the middle of a meeting that's running late at work and walk out for date night. People he works with know about it and respect it. -- Nicole and Erik Griffiths, Porters Corners, New York, married 11 years

After being married 18 years I think one key element is commitment. Being commited to your partner no matter what life throws at you. Marriage is work, but it also can be fun as well. Do not lose the fun that life and challenges can take out you. Work, kids, mortgages, football practices, hockey practices, inlaws, etc, etc. can take its toll. Never lose the attitude that your mate is a gift that is meant to be cherished and respected, even thought you might want to strangle them from time to time.
The real reward in marriage is after years of being together and knowing all the warts, and where skeletons are buried, you still love and care for the person. That takes work! but the rewards are worth it.
The key to make marriages work is both parities putting a prioirity on the marriage and the relationship before, every thing else.!
