Qualities of a Happy Marriage?
One of the questions they had to answer was, "What do you think is necessary for a happy marriage?"
These students were mostly in their late teens or early twenties, and none of them were married, so I wasn't sure what kind of experience or ideas they might bring to this question. I suggested that they think about the married people they had known throughout their lives. What qualities had they observed in happily married couples?
The top answer was respect. After that came communication, honesty, and love.
