Look, I don’t care who you are, having a relationship is a lot of work.
Keeping a relationship going is also a lot of hard work.
I am no love expert but I have been married 10 years and I married my childhood sweetheart so that has to account for something, right? Ha!
But if you are wanting to keep the romance kindling and have your marriage long lasting, Ralph Macchio aka Daniel LaRusso from The Karate Kid and Cobra Kai, may just have the answer.
He recently shared his secret to his long-lasting marriage with his wife his wife of 33 years, Phyllis Fierro.
Apparently, Ralph and Phyllis met when they were teens and are still in love to this day.
Ralph told People that he thinks the key to his successful marriage is:
“It’s the belief through the easy times, through the tough times, whatever we encounter, that we are meant to be together.”
HOLY CRAP! Mic Drop!
That is so true and honestly, isn’t that what our vows are when we get married? “For better or for worse”?
It is such a simple concept but so many of us forget especially during the tough and unfair times.
So, if you want a happy and long-lasting marriage, keep Ralph Macchio’s advice in the back of your brain and be there for your spouse no matter what!
P.S. I just fell in love with this guy even more!!
