Do you want to have a good and successful marriage? There are more than plenty of books you could read on the subject, but those cost money and have SO many words in them. It’s probably better, as in all things, to just go see what the internet has to say.
Because Twitter has plenty to gab about when it comes to marriage. And if we’re just willing to listen, we might be able to glean some gold.
So here are a few tips for wedded bliss, via Twitter.
12. Find your temperature
It cannot be overstated how much conflict this will avoid.
Secret to a successful marriage is to marry the one who matches your values, principles and thermostat settings

11. Remember the good times
And the bad ones. And the banal ones. Just remember every single thing.
If it wasn’t for me my husband would have no idea what he said March 5th 2010.

10. Keep your charm
Even if it has never actually worked a single time in your life.
I’m starting to think my wife may not find the charming things I do charming.

9. Find a nice division of labor
And make sure you don’t put too much of it on yourself.
"You don't load the dishwasher right," I said to my wife just before it permanently became my job.

8. Listen well
Or just repeat yourself a lot.
Not sure if my wife didn't hear me say I was coming down with a cold or if she is ignoring me. Guess I'd better mention it another 67 times.

7. Communication is key
…is what everybody says, and then they do this crap.
Prayers for my husband who very tragically got me nothing for our anniversary when I specifically told him I wanted nothing for our anniversary.

6. Use all the tools at your disposal
Or risk incurring the wrath of not saving that 50 cents on soap.
Forgot to use a coupon my wife gave me and I’m not sure if I should go home or disappear and start a new life.

5. Keep the spark alive
Or write your own fan fiction.
Wife and I are at that age where foreplay is just us describing things we'd probably do to each other if we weren't so tired and achy.

4. Enjoy the little things
So fresh, so smooth.
I’ve been married for over 10 years I shave my legs for my freshly cleaned sheets not my husband

3. Stay connected
Even if it’s unbearable.
Me: *wakes husband from sleeping* What are you thinking about? You seem distant.

2. Go the extra mile
And then another, and another, and another…
I was trying to type marriage and it autocorrected to marathon and I don’t think that was an accident.
