      Hey Justin!

      Loved your Youtube video on “15 websites…”! I am seriously considering joinning three of them already…I was wondering if you could sugest a website similar to Metro Parent, but for couples who have been successful in their marriage. My wife and I have been happily married (with a healhty dose of ups and downs, mind you!) now for 18 years. Eventhough we have no kids, we feel we could share some of our experience in regards to having a fruitfull, loving marriage, especially for those young couples who are just starting out. Any suggestions would be very welcome. Thanks again and great work on the video and blog!
