Lori, thanks for this uftnpliig series of Secrets to Long Marriage.  As for your questions, I feel my wife’s gratitude most with simple statements like,  I am so glad I have you or I am so thankful for our marriage. My gratitude often falls along the same lines, but I also try to express gratitude even for little things: a delicious meal, an unexpected kiss, an outfit that I know she chose for my preferences, and the thousand other things she does for me on a daily basis.
