More and more often there are people realizing that life quality is very important nowadays. This is a nice article explaining how a couple can change, grow and be much happier, even after many years together! The basis to start from, though, is that both man and woman accept to see life from a different perspective!

Nice explaination of how to build a better friendship with your spouse. 

Michael Wiener's comment, August 17, 2013 5:52 PM
Marriage is a never ending courtship. I have figure it out when I was in my 20s by observing why many marriage people tend to be happy with their partners in the long run. I have also observed, during courtship or dating stage, couples are very affectionate that made the relationship very colorful and meaningful.
Sharilee Swaity's curator insight, August 18, 2013 1:25 AM

Great advice on how to be friends with your husband or wife. You do things with a friend that keep the friendship going, like being honest, and not criticizing too much.
