Rules for a Happy Marriage

We're off to see two of my friends get married today.

While they seem so perfect for each other in their
own quirky, bizarre and hysterical way,
I know that there will be rough spots,
and I want to make sure they get through them ok.
Which brings me to the instructions that
came in the envelope with OUR marriage license,
11 years ago.
They are dog-earred from hanging on
several refrigerators too long,
but they need to be seen, because these rules are ALL true.
And while the Hubs and I would argue over
who does or doesn't follow which rule,
we are still together going strong,
as I hope that these friends will be in the next decade
& several decades to come:

Someone should have added "serve non-alcoholic wine to your sisters". That chunk of wisdom would have been extremely helpful.
