Advanced class. In connection with today’s topic, here’s a very thought-provoking and funny TED talk (for all those who don’t know this site, you need to check it out, it’s simply great). Jenna McCarthy lets the audience know what they don’t know about marriage. When you play the video you can actually get a full transcript of the talk if you want. And here are the key ingredients for a healthy marriage. If you want the details, watch the video.

– The wife is thinner and better looking than the husband. She doesn’t have to be thin. Just thinner than her husband.

– The husband does housework.

– People who smile in childhood photos are less likely to get a divorce.

– Do not by any means win an Oscar.

– Do not watch romantic comedies.
