happy valentine gays..........
Ask Amy had a very interesting column for Valentines Day last year, and since Valentines is around the corner I thought I would put this up.  At Cornell's Legacy Project they have collected advice from many Americans about how they had a long and happy marriage.  

"Over the past six years in Cornell University's Legacy Project, we've collected the advice for living from more than 1,200 Americans (most age 70 or older).

I thought your readers would be interested in the top five tips these "wisest Americans" have for people striving for a long and happy marriage:

1. Marry someone a lot like you: Similarity in core values in particular is the key to a happy marriage. And forget about changing someone after marriage; the elders say it just doesn't work.

2. Friendship is as important as romantic love: Heart-thumping passion has to undergo a metamorphosis in lifelong relationships. Marry someone for whom you feel deep friendship as well as love.

3. Don't keep score: Don't take the attitude that marriage must always be a 50-50 proposition; you can't get out exactly what you put in. The key to success is having both partners try to give more than they get out of the relationship.

4. Talk to each other: Marriage to the strong, silent type can be deadly to a relationship. Long-term married partners are talkers (at least to one another, and about things that count).

5. Don't just commit to your partner, commit to marriage itself: Make a commitment to the institution of marriage and take it seriously. Seeing the marriage as bigger than the immediate needs of each partner helps people work together to overcome inevitable rough patches.

Many respondents in our surveys had been married 40, 50 and even 60 or more years. They've experienced all the ups and downs marriage brings, so their advice is worth listening to!"
