If she had written a book about how to keep love alive for 73 years, I would have read it. Her career is the family. The two appear happy, faithful, grateful, and respectful of the other. I'm sure all marriages face challenges and storms.

We don't know anything about the inside of their marriage any more than anyone knows about the inside of ours. There are rumours that George H.W. had stepped out, I'm inclined to believe it, but he was respectful enough to be discreet. They suffered the death of a child. They were under scrutiny in a way that we cannot imagine and which probably surprised them - given that when they entered public life there were different expectations on what was private and what wasn't.
However, what there did seem to be was respect, admiration and genuine affection inside the family and which was modelled by George and Barbara.
I don't think she was joking that her success was marrying well. She did. But it wasn't just marrying a successful, wealthy man who ended up becoming the president. She married someone who seemed to be a partner in marriage.
I did not marry well. I don't mean that my ex is unsuccessful in his career. I mean that I married someone who could not be a partner to me. I have chosen better this time around. Part of it is the luck of meeting my guy, but part of it is me letting all the other guys I met go by the wayside until I met someone who treats me really, really well and the wisdom to hold onto this one. He helps me to be a good life partner, he makes it easy for me. I'd suspect that he'd say the same of me.
handy: Cutiecakes, I see you posted on another forum. How about copying that other post and place it here. It hase some very relevant information and I think this forum will be of more help.
