When the family went to see the recent Meryl Streep flick, we saw the preview to This is 40. I looked at my sister-in-law and said They just made a movie about your life.

The only way to hang in there with the one we committed ourselves to and stay monogamous is to have a sense of humor. Laughing together at rashes, farts, stray hairs, diarrhea, going in for a kiss only to receive a burp, sagging, and all other kinds of funk can keep a couple together forever. PS: Let him have the remote and hold hands often.
And light a candle every now and then.
