Have You Been Married for Over 30 Years? What’s Your Advice for Newlyweds?

By Margaret Manning June 19, 2016 Family

Have you been married for more than 30 years? Congratulations!

Whether you have reached this milestone with almost no friction, or, like most couples, had to deal with plenty of “plateaus” over the years, this is definitely something to be celebrated.

In fact, it occurs to me that, with decades of marriage experience, you have plenty to share with the world about how to stay happy with your partner over the years. This is great news for the 6,300 young couples who will tie the knot in the U.S. just today!

I’d love to get a conversation started about this. My goal here is to collect the wisdom of the many happy couples in our community and create a list of useful recommendations for our daughters and, eventually, granddaughters.

If you have been married for over 30 years, please join the conversation and share your secrets!

What is one piece of advice that you wish someone had given you on your wedding day? What have you learned about maintaining a happy marriage over the decades? Please join the conversation!
