Lovely Blogging Tips from Long-Lasting Relationships

Happy Senior Couple Looking To Sea on A Tropical Beach

Quick question: what’s the longest marriage on record this year in the country?

This distinction goes to Dale and Alice Rockey of Olathe, Kansas upon winning this year’s title for the Longest Married Couple Project.

The couple was married on December 29, 1933. That’s a mind-boggling 81 years together.

This annual event was sponsored by Worldwide Marriage Encourage (WWME), one of the first faith-based enrichment programs in the US.

The project aims to show that it is possible to have a long-lasting marriage. Difficult, but possible.

It’s no secret that marriage takes hard work, patience, perseverance, and lots of love. That’s what retirees shared about their happy marriage to their respective spouses conducted by gerontologist Karl Pillemer upon conducting the Marriage Advice Project.

Below are the insights he gathered:

  • Follow your heart when choosing a spouse
  • Use your head
  • Look for someone with similar values
  • Talk, talk, talk
  • Tread carefully when discussing difficult topics
  • Put your relationship first
  • Lighten up on in-law relationships
  • Stay out of debt
  • Focus on small things to keep spark alive
  • Enjoy intimacy
  • Respect each other

Using these points above, we can apply the same thing between bloggers and their readers.
