wise words ii

ST: You have been married for 56 years. What would you tell young Singaporeans on what it takes to keep a marriage going that long?

Mrs Lee: My advice is don’t marry someone if you hope to change him after marriage. You have to be prepared to take him as he is and to make compromises over any differences, and if you are lucky, you will find someone who has the same attitude.
