 10 Secrets For A Happy Marriage

Carma Sirrine


I absolutely love it when we get to hear advice from people like Carma who have been married for over 50 years! What an incredible journey these two have been on!! I look forward to that day with my own hubby!! Carma lost her mother at a young age, she has come far, and she wants to share her success, as well as others, with all of you!! She has a very inspiring story and background. What an incredible mother, grandma, friend and I am sure WIFE! 😉

Carma’s book, 10 Secrets For A Happy Marriage, is a very insightful book on other marriages in this day and age. Short stories, of Carma’s friends and family, that share with the reader, the ins-and-outs of ways to create an everlasting marriage.  These are stories from real people!! I couldn’t even pick a favorite to share with you. There has to be at least one story in this book that everyone can relate to, with heartfelt ways to show unconditional love to your spouse.  My favorite part of the book, chapter 10. The last one, where she shares all her secrets…

Her stories and advice focus on the following topics…

Relying on the Lord

Making Decisions Early

Making Loving Relationships

Having TOTAL Commitment

Money Matters

Lighten Up Your Life

Having a Good Attitude

Sharing Thoughts and Feelings

Remembering the Best Times

These things are just a few of the many important matters we need most to make our relationships last. Carma has been very kind to share this book with us, and to allow us to give not one, but TWO signed copies away to our amazing readers!! So YES, you can own this book yourself!! It would be great for any couple, newly engaged, newly weds… well anyone!!! Hurry and enter, you are missing out!!!

    One of my favorite secrets is laughing together :)

  2. Barbara says:

    why yes, I am a newsletter subscriber!

    One bit of advice for a happy husband and a happy marriage is to ask him his opinion and advice and really listen then follow it. Then, after you have followed it and things have worked out, tell him how grateful you are to have married such a great advisor. My H is amazing in how he deals with people so whenever I have a potentially awkward or difficult interpersonal interaction looming I ask him what he would do. When it is a situation where I have to handle something on the spot I try to ask myself what he would do and then do it. When I share what I did I tell him that I tried to do what he would do.

    Too often we wives don’t give our husbands’ ideas the respect they deserve. Just because he would do things differently doesn’t mean he would do them wrong. I have found that where I over-think he just deals and like I said, he is terrific at it.

  5. Lani W says:

    I just subscribed; this giveaway made me want to so bad!

    My marriage advice is to brag on him any chance you get, to your friends, to HIS friends, even to family who already know him! It’s SO good for him to hear you talk about him that way.

  6. lisa kendall says:

    I have officially subscribed to your newsletter! I’m surprised I hadn’t until now. I’ve been missing out!
    One of our many secrets to a happy marriage would be to never put each other down, even in joking, and especially never ever in public. We never call each other names (stupid..etc).

  7. lisa kendall says:

    Yay! I’m a subscriber!

  10. Tildie W. says:

    I am an official newsletter reader! I love all of the creative ideas!
    My advice is to have a date night or have time together. It doesn’t have to be all lovey dovey or super special. Just take time for yourselves as a couple and talk. When you have kids sometimes that’s all you talk about is the kids, so talk about other things.

  11. Tildie W. says:

    I posted on facebook!

  12. Teresa Farmer says:

    I am a subscriber and my piece of advice is I do acts of service for my husband everyday and it makes him happy and he is a great husband in return.

  13. Elyssa says:

    I’m an official newsletter reader and I think that a great secret to a happy marriage is to go to bed together, take the time to read something together before falling asleep. Some of the most memorable (and often funniest) moments in my marriage have been the quality time we spend right before going to sleep!

  14. Natalie says:

    I am an official newsletter reader.

    My advice would be to remember to do nice things for each other. I love being able to make lunch for my husband multiple times a week. I know it is something so little but he enjoys my cooking and he enjoys the time he gets to spend with our son while I am cooking.

  24. Christy M says:

    I am a newsletter subscriber. One thing I try to remember in my marriage is that my hubby never wants to hurt me. If he says or does something that seems hurtful, I try to take a step back and figure out what is really going on. Usually I just misunderstood what happened. I know he loves me and I never question that.

  25. Annette Burke says:

    I am already a newsletter reader.

    The one advice that my grandfather said to us when I got married was to Never go to bed angry, and always keep the other person in mind, not to be selfish. this has been great advice. He and grandma have been married going on 64 years, I think they know what they are talking about!
