Secrets to a Long-Lasting Marriage

I came across this article recently whereby two bachelors interviewed couples who have been married for 40 years or more to uncover the secrets to a successful and long-lasting marriage for their book, Project Everlasting.

There are actually seven secrets in all but one of them is certainly an eye-opener for me. And that secret is a four-letter word which is GIVE. All along, I believe that marriage is about equal partnership. By right, it has to be a 50/50 thing, isn’t it?

But one of the interviewee actually said, “Most people think marriage is 50/50. It’s not. It’s 60/40. You give 60. You take 40. And that goes for both of you.” I guess that is sound advice for married couples. If both spouses practise this philosophy, a marriage certainly has a high chance of enduring.

Adding on, another interviewee said, “The younger generations seem to have a sort of me-me-me mentality. The great part is that the me gets everything it needs when it puts the we first.” Wow! Doesn’t that help you understand marriage a little better?

It is just sad that these days, divorce rates are so high that we need to look for “secrets” from long-married couples. And sometimes, there are just no secrets lurking there but merely our attitude, mentality and life philosophy on sharing a life together.

This is the point I was wondering about. Have any of the guys who would write a woman off for having worked in a strip club ever been a patron? Gotten a happy ending to a massage? Visited a prostitute? purchased porn?

How does the gender of who is handing over the cash, and who is taking it, determine who is tainted by the “skank” tag?

I’ve also heard from guys who’ve been to strip clubs and bachelor parties that’s very common for the stripper to offer more services in the back room state laws or not. It’s not uncommon for a club to have a handful of dancers that do “extras” (either in the club or afterward), but that doesn’t mean that all or even most of them do–and exactly zero of the ones who’ve ever offered me any “extras” were ones I would have considered dating before the offer was made. It only takes a few minutes of conversation, if that, to figure out which are which.
