Married in Wichita, Kans., the newlyweds left the wedding in a horse-drawn carriage.

5 Secrets to a HAPPY MARRIAGE
By Clint Black
1 Love isn’t something that we have, it’s something that we do.
2 Roy Rogers gave me the advice to “never go to bed angry.” But it’s more than that. It’s communication in general. Lisa and I figure out the things that embarrass, irritate, frustrate and hurt each other, and then I stop doing them.
3 It’s also key to appreciate having someone around to tell you when you’re right—or vice-versa!
4 You have to do things from time to time to stir the passion; strike the pose, give the look and run through the house yelling…oh, wait. That part is supposed to remain a secret!
5 Finally, start with love. Don’t marry anyone you don’t at least like already.
