My high-school sweetheart & I will hit 28yrs next month. (and we still like each other.)
I agree, it's the little things...
I also believe that both people have to believe in it. If either person has doubts about whether it's possible to live monogamously for life, then it will eventually fail.
I don't believe in 'soul-mates', insomuch as there is one, and only one perfect match for each person. I'm rather certain there are thousands of other women out there that I could have been equally successful with.
I do think it's necessary that you both have mostly the same set of common core values, and a few common interests. But independence is important too.
Of course, those things should be established BEFORE you get married.
