Tomorrow, we celebrate our 45th Wedding Anniversary!
We got married at the Lutheran Church of the Master on Santa Monica Boulevard in Santa Monica, California in 1966. It is amazing to realize that so many years have passed so quickly!
But we will say this to you — we were lucky to find the love of our life so many years ago. Frankly, we cannot imagine life without each other
Like all marriages, we have had challenges to address, including the death of a child. The truth is, the challenges we have experienced have made our marriage stronger.
As many of you know, we have spent nearly three decades interviewing successfully married couples around the world (46 countries on 6 of the world’s 7 continents). We have published four books about our findings, including our recent book, Building a Love that Lasts: The Seven Surprising Secrets of Successful Marriage (Jossey-Bass/Wiley).
There are many important and successful love stories around the world. We are fortunate to be included among them.
Hug someone you love tonight. Remember the things that really matter. Love someone else more than life itself. There is nothing like it.
