The art of happy marriages

I get many elderly (70+ year olds) clients who come in with their spouse. They will devulge how many years they have been together. I am often impressed because 1/3 of my friends are going through divorce or stuck in an unhappy marriage. During these small talk sessions, I'll humor them and ask them "What's the secret to a long and happy marriage?"

1. Cooperation

2. Never argue with the wife

3. Well this is my second marriage 

4. She does things to help me, and I help her.

And my favorite is..
5. We are best friends! 

Although the answers may be simple, it may just be that. Simplicity is a breath of fresh air.
