You're gonna love this one.
I've married a bunch of people. No, I'm not taking a book from the Jennifer Lopez school of the sanctity of marriage — I mean I performed the marriages for a few couples I know.

Disney princesses get a pretty bad rap. Sure, they often have impossible bodily proportions, weird patriarchal relationships and until recently married at 16 and essentially viewed every living matriarchal figure in any given kingdom as wicked, evil and selfish.

What makes a marriage last? The answer to that question is different for everyone, and every marriage is individual. That said, there are lessons to be gleaned from other marriages and things we can incorporate into our own to fortify and strengthen them. But what are they? Whether it's regular hot sex for decades or something more subtle and intangible, the people we know who have been married for 10, 20, 30+ years all have their own reasons their relationships have endured while so many others have failed.
