After collecting and sharing almost a full year’s worth of marriage advice, one common thread we’ve noticed is that oftentimes, the “secret” to marriage is simple, and Debbie and Gregg sum it up perfectly. “I guess our secret is that we respect each other. We are kind to each other and don’t take each other for granted.” While this advice is sometimes much easier said than done, it’s comforting to know that when push comes to shove, a marriage that has respect, kindness, and gratitude at its core is one to be very proud of.
