Marry someone who is crazy about you and goes out of his or her way to please you. If they ain't gonna do this in the first flush of love, you can be darned sure it won't occur to them thirty years later.
Also, don't assume you will change anyone with time. You won't. You have to love them exactly as you find them. Speaking only from my personal experience from a long time ago.

Hmmm...well, it's only taken 25 years, but he has changed several things, and I guess I have, too. Over the course of a quarter century, you start to realize the other person may just have a point.

Do these changes involve a redistribution of body mass or a loss or graying of the hair? We've noticed a few of those kind of changes here......

We've got that redistribution going pretty well, youbet. But it is certainly true you won't change people, so be sure you can live with their faults, and they yours!

Those happen to everybody! They don't seem to have any effect on our relationship, though.

There's a reason our vision gets worse with age...
