Well, that can be what the “ideal” marriage has finally become, often much to the surprise of both partners who started out on this blissful trip until “death do us part”.
    Usually the couple intended to have their marriage be idyllic, which Webster’s dictionary describes as “pleasing or picturesque in natural simplicity.” In other words, wonderful, enjoyable, happily in love with each other.

  • SAVVY SENIOR: An ethical will? What is that?

    Dear Savvy Senior
    What can you tell me about ethical wills?
