Keys to a successful marriage: an introduction

In a world full of fast weddings and even faster divorces, many couples strive to find the key to a successful marriage. Although there is no tried and true formula for making marriage work, there are amazing similarities between the relationships of couples whose marriages have stood the test of time.

Much like the ingredients needed to make a delicious batch of chocolate chip cookies, there are certain components required to achieve lasting happiness in marriage. As the egg in that recipe holds the cookie dough together, so do these essential elements hold together a marriage.
