I still do is a wedding anniversary diary, a marriage workbook and a keepsake.
Research shows that if couples can look back and remember earlier good times together, usually a marriage can be saved.
A happy marriage is about three things: memories of togetherness, forgiveness of mistakes, and a promise to never give up on each other
