Mark Twain once said, “No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century.”
Although my love feels pretty doggone close to perfect, I have to agree with Twain.
Once you’ve been married that long, you know how you will respond to nearly every challenge life throws your way. You’ve been tested and come through the fire like pure gold.
This is why when I was recently asked by a newlywed for advice, I offered this: Only listen to marital advice from couples whose marriages you’d like to emulate.
