can google Bose sleepbuds to see its features.

I am considering to get a pair for myself :wink:
That would be a very expensive toy!! :wink:

Why donchew try the normal foam earplugs (industrial grade) or the NS silicone type (from your ds)? These are vvery compact and less intrusive. Or cut offf the cord from an unused pair of earphone and try.

I am already using 3M foam ear plugs. When new, they work very well. I cant even hear my alarm clock.

I want to try something new. Still affordable price.

I think this is a pretty interesting question and definitely endless answers. For me, my marriage always holds on the promise to never go to bed angry because we both agreed to settle it and let bygones be bygones. This ensures that I do not bring up past arguments and do not anger him further if not our argument may take hours...

Always keep in mind: If you have the same feeling since the first time you were inlove with your partner until now, then you're marriage will last long. Don't lose it. :)

First comes communication. Without communication you don't get to know someone and if you don't know them how can you trust them? Then of course is honesty, in order to be able to trust someone you need to be trustworthy yourself. A successful marriage/relationship is a partnership, both partners working (constantly) for the good of the relationship. A good relationship/marriage is like a flourishing business. In order for a business to be a success everyone involved must work hard to keep it successful and the same goes with any marriage/relationships. So the keys are communication, honesty and hard work.

There are a number of things that are important.
1). Being committed, right from the start, to the idea that marriage is for life.
2). Growing love for each other out of a deep friendship, and not just getting together on the basis of romantic feelings (which won't last).
3). Getting to know each other well beforehand, and making sure that you basically agree on the things that are most important to each of you.
4). Keeping the channels of communication open and not just retreating into doing your own thing.
5). Being willing to compromise and not being resentful when you don't get your way.
6). Not trying to "keep score" to see who's contributing more or sacrificing more.
7). Not taking it out on your partner when things go badly.
8). Always approaching life with the attitude that the two of you are a team, and actively looking to support your partner.
9). When you are disappointed or angry with your partner, take a moment to recall and be grateful for some of the things they do for you.

besides the love for one another, i believe respect, honesty, trust, and most importantly communication is the main key to a happy relationship. leaing on each other, and support each other in everyaspect of the relationship.

This is way too difficult for many reasons. Life changes and priorities change too! The feeling the first time you were in love w/ your partner may not be the same anymore but I believe that's not how we measure marriage. For me if you're w/ each other through thick and thin, your marriage will last. :love:
