Lasting Love: Long-Term Relationship Advice From Readers

Posted: 02/10/2012 9:24 am

I love the process of being able to ask you, readers, a question and get your responses through twitter @RitaWilson and @HuffPost50. February's question was about love and the secrets to long-lasting relationships. It seems your answers were close to what my answers would be: Laughter, kindness, respect, allowing the other to grow, hanging in there when it gets rough, not walking away. And great sex.

One of my favorites was from someone who said that the secret to a long-term relationship is "not wanting a divorce at the same time." That reminded me of something Olivia Harrison said in her documentary on her husband George Harrison, "Living in the Material World." She said a secret to a long marriage is not getting divorced. That seems clear enough. If Cupid had a twitter account, what do you think he would say?

Check out Rita's story on her parents' 56-year marriage, and our slideshow of readers' secrets to long-lasting relationships. If you have a tip to share, comment below!
