Secrets of Real Women Who Have Been Married 30-Plus Years! Shout out on the show today to PureWow and Rachel Bowie for this enlightening piece on how to keep a long marriage happily together. This was my favorite advice tidbit… “As cliché as it sounds, it’s helpful to marry your best friend. But taking it a step further: The key to an enduring marriage is to always treat them like that. For example, best friends are honest in a kind way, they accept each other the way they are and never try to change you. You also don’t stay mad at a best friend because they’re too important to you. I have never shouted at my best friends, but have shouted at my husband until I realized I wouldn’t do that to a friend. It’s pretty eye-opening.” ? Pamela, FL
