You know how they do a keys to the game before the start of a sporting event? What is going to mean success for each team?

Well, I thought it would be fun to do a keys to success for your marriage!

Could be joint ones or ones just for you or just for your partner.

Things for her to do for the success of the marriage:

- let him play her hair (even tho she doesn't like it)

- flirt w/him like he is a guy you just met in the elevator

- stay calm even when you want to be a stressball

Keys for his game:

- rub her back and neck when you see she is becoming a stressball

- make healthy meals for your family

- sing occasionally to/with her

Different strokes for different folks!  ;-)  Don't think any of those work for us.  What is important to us is giving eath other space.  We love being with each other and share a lot of common interests, but neither one freaks out when the other person wants to go off and do his/her own thing or with friends (and that include ex's as we have complete trust in each other).

Hi Dee,
Sorry it has taken me so long to get here but so many problems I tend to give up ::blush::
Not sure I understand but those are some great ideas you shared :)

Sorry - I was trying to be fun. How about - what makes your marriage work for you two?

Are you still having log in problems? Really?

I couldn't get "passion8te" to work and when I tried to report it, they told me this was my username (I guessed I signed up with it initially). Never had a problem after that...

Glad you are not though
Fun I like ..
At this point in time what works for us is the fact we each have our computers <wink>
Seriously .. it just works  .. I know that doesn't make sense but it does.
We'll be married 34 years this August so .. whatever we have done has/is working :)

Be true to your self and be your self, that works for both partners.
