    “You have to live a long time,” said Wilma, with a giggle. “No, you don’t take fights to bed with you.”

    “If you have an argument or a fight, you kiss before bed,” Glenn agreed. “You don’t carry grudges, that’s the key.”

    “It makes it easy that when he wakes up, he’s always in a good mood,” said Wilma. “He’s a morning person so he sets the good mood for the day.”
