Relationships: 7 Secrets To A Long — And Happy Marriage


Matthew Boggs, whose parents divorced, was jaded about marriage. But he noticed his grandmother and grandfather, who had been married for 63 years, were still madly in love. To find out what was the secret to a long and happy marriage, Boggs and his friend, Jason Miller, traveled 12,000 miles around the U.S. to talk to what they call the “Marriage Masters,” couples who have been married 40 years or more. In their new book, “Project Everlasting,” Boggs and Miller share advice from the happy couples. TODAYshow.com asked the two bachelors to tell us what are the top seven secrets to a successful marriage. Here they are:

1. “Divorce? Never. Murder? Often!”
Entering matrimony with the mindset that “divorce is not an option” is vital for the long-term success of marriage, say the Marriage Masters (a term we gave couples who have been happily married over 40 years). They went on to explain that this kind of mindset allows a couple to see solutions to marriage’s boiling points — and trust us, not one of our interviewee couples avoided such periods of relational strife — which would have otherwise been overlooked simply because one eye was too busy examining exit strategies.

Happy Friday!

Daily Inspiration: Stop Responding- Heather Lindsey


Have you ever had that friend where it seemed like everything was normal & then ALL the sudden there was an emotional outburst of everything YOU did wrong? That's not friendship. That's draining.

African Sweetheart Weddings: 'Perfect Match' Laide Sowunmi And Gbeminiyi Akala's Love Story


I met my husband through a mutual friend. Gbemi went through his friend's phone and saw my picture on his BBM. 

He pestered him for my phone number and called me that afternoon.  I was really busy that Friday at work and didn't feel like chatting.

Later in the evening I went to The Place in Lekki Phase 1 to buy my dinner and ran into our mutual friend there. I said hi and gisted for a bit then I noticed he was keeping me there with silly gist. Apparently he had called Gbemi to tell him I was with him. He left his office in VI and started rushing down to meet me.

My Fight Against An Invisible Enemy


Foday Gallah
Health workers fighting Ebola have been named as Time's "Person of the Year", and one face splashed on covers of the magazine is that of an ambulance driver, Foday Gallah, in the Liberian capital, Monrovia. Here he tells the BBC of his determination to battle a disease which almost killed him.
In August, I went to pick a little four-year-old boy up from his home. I knew the place well. I had already taken seven members of his family, who all eventually died. He was the last one.
I hadn't taken him before because he had showed no symptoms. But I had asked the neighbours to keep an eye on him and call me if he got sick.
On the afternoon of the morning that I took his father and grandmother and brothers, I got the call. I drove straight to his home and I saw the boy lying in a pool of vomit.

Happy Friday Lovelies!
