The question was answered by many social media users and there were some really interesting takes.
Below are some comments we culled from the post ;

Marriage becomes boring as you grow in it, especially when you as a Man is well loaded. Some beautiful perfect side chicks start surfacing. Understanding that the devil you already knew is way better than the super Angel you're just meeting is the secret that keeps your marriage!

One big thing I learnt within my first 5 years of marriage is to never argue with my wife. It always ended up with her twisting my words and making the argument unending. I stopped arguing. I started allowing her talk then I used questions to make her rethink. It saved me a lot!

For me I learnt, a woman can be kind, loving, loyal but if pushed to the wall, she can do and undo. I also learnt no matter how you push her to do something, she will only do that which she wants(financially). I also learnt never to test a woman's patience.
