I am sitting, laughing, drinking a whiskey and talking to another couple on the beach about marriage. As is often the case, my affectionate husband has made his impression on other people and they have asked what the secret to our 13 years has been.

I always laugh when I get this question. My response usually catches people off guard. The secret to everlasting love is to never set the expectation of everlasting love. The look the sweet couple who is starting out on their own life together is a mix between fear and disappointment. What could I possibly mean? Am I not committed to forever?
