Keep your lover close.
Walked with a man today who's marriage ended 3 years before retiring. I'm so thankful that Linda loved me and cared for me for 36 years. I don't know how she did it because I'm not the most straightforward man but she must haved loved my quirks.
Everyone reading this, please keep working on your marriage even when you think it ok. Abandon yourself to your lover and love with all you've got. Don't take things for granted. Don't go to sleep angry. Talk and talk and talk some more. Kiss and kiss and kiss some more. Hold hands and look in their eyes and tell them you love them. Life is short and you never know what's around the corner.
