We've all heard that long list of old fashioned marriage rules that we must follow for a happy marriage. As it turns out, some of those are long past their expiration date.

I do agree with the "don't go to bed angry" bc it tells you how sudden death can be? like if you wake up to find that he or she is dead, I'm sure you regret saying those horrible stuff to that person. idk I apply this for all relationships.
