Share Your Photos and Relationship Advice in Honor of Valentine's Day

What makes your marriage or relationship work? Upload a wedding or anniversary photo on "Patch" with your advice in the caption and/or let us know by commenting below.

Whether you've been married for one day, one month or one year share your photos and relationship advice. Not married but in a relationship or domestic partnership, Hazelwood Patch also wants to hear how you've made your relationship a success.

Marie Dixon-Price, who married her high school sweetheart last year said the key to their 10 year relationship has been appreciation and understanding.

"Both people have to communicate with each other open and honestly," she said. "It's also important to respect and trust each other. 

Whenever differences cause a heated argument, take time to calm down and discuss it when both parties are ready."

Dixon-Price also added that time plays a role in a relationship.

"Last but not least, you have to make the time to enjoy and appreciate each other," she said.

We are hoping to fill this photo gallery with photos of local couples and words of advice from area readers. Can you help us out?

All you have to do is post a wedding, engagement, anniversary or couples photo here and include in the caption of that photo your advice on what keeps your relationship strong. 

Posting a photo simple! Here is what you will need to do: 

  • Click on the giant "Upload Photos and Videos" button right above the photo gallery
  • Select a photo of yourself and your significant other
  • Add a caption with your names, duration of marriage, and piece of advice

I don't think I have enough life experience to give love advice just yet but I look forward to seeing what other people post. Good advice from Marie.

Well thanks for commenting anyway Ashley. I don't think there is a rule about how long you have to have lived in order to have a great opinion. It could even be about what NOT to do!
