Don't listen to anyone else. Every realtionship is different. Do your own thing as long as you both are happy.

Its work. Its not roses and happy happy. Dont expect it to just flow and not have bumps in the road cuz it will but that doesnt mean you arent having a happy or successful marriage nor does it mean you must not love one another, etc and should divorce.

Communicate and then listen...all the time, about everything.

Be supportive even if you think the other party is lame, stupid, etc.

Be selfless, not selfish. Marriage is a two way road but not always at the same time.

my biggest thing is COMMUNICATION if you dont talk things wont progress....marriage needs to grow as does love.....and you need to work at it....listen to each other...know the others feelings/wants and try your best to do what you can for your partner....do things together even if its something you dont like and your partner does...do it anyways....marriage is about sacrifice and commitment and compromise

I don't have anything extra to add other than what has already been said.

That there is no secret to a long happy marriage. That all marriages are different and you have to do what is best in your own marriage. Don't worry about what other people think, and leave some of your personal life to you and your husband.
