Why is it that 40% – 50% of marriages fail? Why is it that a couple can start out happy, but end up hating each other?

What are the secrets that long time, happily married couples have discovered that have allowed them to withstand the test of time?

Dr. Willie Jolley and Dee Taylor-Jolley have withstood the test of time. They have been married for over 36 years and have not had an argument in 35 of those years. That doesn’t mean that they never argued. The first two years were tough, but they learned some secrets that have helped them go from arguing to loving!
