2. 15 Ways To Stay Married For 15 Years
This article is more tailored to the ladies, and contains some lovely advice. Read it. Talk about it with your significant other. What can you do better? What are your "team rules"?
All the crap you read in magazines about honesty, sense of humor, communication, sensitivity, date nights, couples weekends, blah blah blah can be trumped by one word: loyalty.

Here's a link to the article. It's a fantastic read. Here's one of my favorite excerpts. I have totally felt this way before:

7. How To Stay Marrired - A 5 Point Plan
Some great tips to keep things interesting, and avoid allowing your relationship to go stale.
Don’t be the “That’s Not My Thing” guy. That guy is a total dick and a shitty husband to boot. And please feel free to flip genders here, ’cause the same hostile adjectives apply to the wife who thinks dressing up like fucking Chewbacca at Comic Con is stupid, every bit as much as it does for the dude who refuses to ever sit down in front of a scrapbook. Don’t be a macho dick. Don’t be a mean bitch. It’s all the same in the end. And it’ll ruin a relationship.
