1) Love is all you need - Adam's 93-year-old Nannie Mary said it best, "Love is all you need."

2) Try to be in good moods around each other - Obviously, every day will not be sunshine and roses, but it's important to be in good moods together. Laugh, joke, and have fun.

3) Don't forget your sense of humor - Laugh and have a good time together. Don't forget why you fell in love to begin with!

4) Keep the arguing to a minimum - You don't want anything compromising your marriage, especially not an argument that could have been avoided from the beginning. Bottom line - if it's not worth arguing about, drop it.

5) Compliment each other - It's the little things. So, don't forget to tell each other why you love them. If they dressed up, tell them they look nice. It will be appreciated.

6) Go on dates - Dress up. Make reservations. Act like it is your very first date all over again, it will keep your love strong.

7) Enjoy each other - True love is hard to come by. So when you find it, enjoy it.
