Almost ten years ago, my husband and I were in route to Curacao for our honeymoon when we met an older couple that exuded a flirtatious and passionate love for one another. After a few minutes of conversation, we learned they had been married for some 50+ years. That’s a marital success not often heard of in today’s society.
Before wishing us a lifetime of love and going on their way, this couple told Mark and I the secret to marital success. I’m not sure why, but the secret they shared has been burned in my mind ever since.
Are you ready? Here it is: “Never stop taking showers together.”
What do you think? Do you remember the last shower you took with your spouse?
I remember mine. Let’s just say having small children in the home brings a whole new challenge to showering in privacy. Also, taking a long hot shower where I don’t have to share the steamy, feel-so-great water with another body is sort of my 20-minute mommy escape.
