Keys To A Successful Marriage

I’m glad to report that I’ve been married for ten successful years.

Above is a picture I took of my wife at the baseball game.

The keys to our successful marriage are found in this picture.

Here are these keys—

1. We always keep one seat between us.

2. We never look at each other.

3. In order to avoid conversation, we always have something to read.

Beyond a measure of distance, I think a marriage works when people are themselves—assuming they are not jerks by nature—and when people work hard to be nice to each other.

These things and a measure of good luck.

This is what I have to offer on this subject.

  1. Neil you are so,so right! This pretty close to how my spouse and I have almost (in July) 50 years and I would opt for 50 more if possible. I think she would to but you never know do you?

  2. Bringing something to read to an Astros game is highly advisable.

  3. Jerry–No, at heart one does not know. I agree.

    Citizen X–And since they stopped blasting rock music between every pitch you can concentrate on what you are reading.
