What makes a marriage work? A study asked women, and the results were interesting, and for some, shocking.Join us at 5:30 on CHCH 11.

I can't wait to see this one!
AT the very least, there should also be a 'study' that asks men. Then compare. That would, indeed be more interesting and not as skewed.
Ozzie - I think you may have opened the dreaded can of worms. What DO men think makes a marriage successful? We ladies would love to know. And be honest.
Obviously I cannot for one moment presume that I may speak for men generally. However, without giving anything away, most men, in most relationships, marriage or otherwise look for someone to love and be loved back and spending time with someone who is also a friend - and does not play stupid games. And I'm not talking about jump rope, either.Truly, we don't want a whole lot. But do not mistake that for indifference or complacency.We like to be comfortable.And realistically, so do women.I want to grow old(er) with my best friend and weather the highs and lows life throws in our path.Like I said, it's not much. And it's not unrealistic or unattainable - is it?BTW, my word is 'dyinti' as in "Am dyinti get to know you better!"
No, it is not unrealistic or unattainable. I agree with your description of a happy union (maybe because we are old(er) and have learned some lessons along the way). Some marriages seem to need the drama and the games, but I'm too tired for that crap.My number one ingredient for a good relationship has to be a sense of humour. It's easy when things are going swimmingly, but when things are tough, and you think that just one more thing will tip you over the edge, and then that thing happens - if you can look at each other and laugh and take a breath and carry on, you've got it made.
