* Shared faith

* Common goals

* Mutual respect

* Good wine


  • chefmom

    Good Wine should top the list….

  • Dan

    If one of you works nights and the other works days that helps too.

  • OHmommy

    Nice list… I would have to agree.

    However, is Trader Joes wine considered to be good wine? LOL.

  • HRH

    You should write a marriage book.

  • Kimmylyn

    True. Very True.
    But does the asterik next to the wine mean:
    In case you don’t have wine, use any kind of alcohol to help you cope? LOL

  • Michael C

    Though I can’t drink, doesn’t good wine make everything easier?

  • Stella

    Excellent list….quite accurate!

  • PG

    been making it work for 12 years sans wine. Don’t like it at all. Beer, though? MAGIC!

  • Ashley

    Wine! Hmm. Maybe that’s what it is… *makes mental note*

  • Stacey @Real World Mom

    Well, at least I had good wine! 😉

  • Misty

    husband doesn’t drink wine. He would say “good cookies”, but I think that’s wrong too…

    Sex. It has to be sex. Sex is so much more important in the mechanical workings of a marriage than many believe.

    Now, wine can lead to sex. or if you are my husband- cookies…

  • Tyler @ Building Camelot

    You don’t specify HOW much wine. Some days we need more than others!

  • Rachel


    Although occasionally a good margarita or an ice cold beer will suffice.

    And toe curling, tongue wagging, heart pounding sex.

  • <---That Girl

    yeah these last few took the words out of my mouth. Momo, how could you forget the sex? It should have been on that list at least 3 times…maybe 4

  • Mimi aka pz5wjj

    Hmm… I guess “Good Wine” would make the “who looks better” argument go out the window — well with enough “good wine” anyway!

  • meleah rebeccah

    I love the last one!

  • holly

    woooow. i bomb out on all four counts. please tell me i get a do-over. a DO-OVER!!!!!

    i think i need to take some time to reflect.

    just how long the kids have left in school….

    wait – the mutual respect – does it have to be for each other?

    and the common – you mean as in common-everyday? or common as in the same. oh? dang.

  • Dapoppins

    ooh good list!

  • Nola

    That last one gets two stars in my house!

  • Bee Repartee

    Squeeee for Two Buck Chuck!

  • Bee

    Oh-oh. I scored one out of four!

  • Pinky

    I just read about 6 posts and I’m wondering…why don’t I come here more often? I love your take on life and mother hood!

  • BusyDad

    For mine, I need to go industrial strength with the Costco bottle of Jack. But it’s all points along the same spectrum…

  • AlisonH

    Too Mormon here for that last one; how about, I’ll substitute in Valrhona or Scharffenberger chocolate. Works for us. (We’re hitting 28 years come June!)

  • Selma

    I’d also like to add lots of laughs.’ I couldn’t have stayed married for 17 years without being able to laugh!
