Have you ever wondered how couples do it? How on earth do they remain happy in their marriages after so many decades?!

I asked so many questions.
What do they know about their thoughts, feelings, and why they do the things they do?
Where do feelings come from?
How do they know things? Not the things they learn in school, but things that can’t be taught? Where do they look for answers and wisdom? Where do new ideas come from?
