Welcome back to The Daily Doocy, the official location of your real life secrets to a happy marriage. So far we've been overwhelmed with your response. Hundreds of you have already pre-ordered my soon to be released book, "The Mr. & Mrs. Happy Handbook," and even more have sent in your secrets. And they're all great!
If you haven't submitted a story yet, read to the end of this blog today, for all the details.
In the meantime for your reading pleasure today, read about a pastor who talks about being "nekkid" and another writer who's found happiness in hiding their spouse's reading glasses!

Never to have an argument with clothes on. Doesn't matter if it's at home or the arena. If you want to fight, you have to be "nekkid." Amazing how many times anger turns to laughter when just a button is unbuttoned.
Of course, a weekly "date night" is also very, very helpful!
Great show, too, Steve!

I have always been told that a good marriage is when the wife is blind and the husband is deaf. We are almost there... if I put her glasses where she can't find them.

The secret to a happy marriage is the fact that we've never had a MEANINGFUL CONVERSATION since we've been married and we never go to bed
angry. One of us always apologizes and the other one says, "That's all right, Jim"!
Our marriage was MADE IN HEAVEN (but so is thunder and lightening). It really seems "just like yesterday" that we got married, and you know what a miserable day yesterday was!
Humor is the mainstay, however some people might say I married Jim for his money (maybe)! He had $18.00 in the bank and I could hardly WAIT to get my hands on it! For the record it's STILL in there!
The other reason for our joy, and the most important, is our spiritual compatibility and a mutual relationship with the Lord. We met in church and the God of forgiveness and "second chances" has blessed us beyond our finite expectations. Four children, nine grandchildren, and two great grands!
We also appreciate your humor, Steve... always uplifting and never compromising. It is appreciated.

The secret to our happy marriage is very simple. I just smile and nod, then do whatever I want.

For 30 years I have told people that the secret to our happy marriage is quite simple. We are both in love with the same person: him!
Thanks to all for today's great letters. More tomorrow in this same space, The Daily Doocy.
We also each day feature one couple on the "FOX & Friends" program which runs from 6 to 9 a.m. ET, be sure to tune in to hear the stories, who knows we might tell yours!
Just one thing, don't send any digital photos unless I write and ask you for a picture, because hundreds of bazillions of megabits are clogging our inbox, and about once a day, the world grinds to a halt in e-Happyland.
Of course all these great stories appear here and on television to mark the upcoming October 17th publication of my book, "The Mr. & Mrs. Happy Handbook," (that's the date it will be in your bookstore) if you'd like to pre-order an AUTOGRAPHED copy, please visit www.happyhandbook.com, which is also where you find out how to submit your personal secrets to a happy marriage.
Thanks again, and we'll see you tomorrow on television and right here!
