5 Secrets to a HAPPY MARRIAGE

By Clint Black

1 Love isn't something that we have, it's something that we do.

2 Roy Rogers gave me the advice to "never go to bed angry." But it's more than that. It's communication in general. Lisa and I figure out the things that embarrass, irritate, frustrate and hurt each other, and then I stop doing them.

3 It's also key to appreciate having someone around to tell you when you're right—or vice-versa!

4 You have to do things from time to time to stir the passion; strike the pose, give the look and run through the house yelling...oh, wait. That part is supposed to remain a secret!

5 Finally, start with love. Don't marry anyone you don't at least like already.
