Say out loud and with great pride the things you love about your partner and marriage.

There are few things more inspiring than seeing an old couple that looks like they're still madly in love with one another.

The US's Black Love Forum collected a few tips from some successful black married couples on how they make it work.

Communicate and compromise

Show your love for you partner in actions and in words. This means saying what you want but remembering to listen to what your partner wants - the most important thing to both of you should be making one another happy.

Stay connected

How did you bond when you were dating? Actively participating in activities that excite and strengthen your bond should be a continued effort on both ends, this also helps keep your marriage interesting.

Always leave each other happy

The age old adage of never going to sleep angry rings true here. Don't allow minor (or major) disagreements to drive a wedge between the two of you as that damage is difficult to undo.

Celebrate what you have

Do this often, alone and together. Say out loud and with great pride the things you love about your partner and marriage.
