Secret to 75-year marriage: "...Stay up and fight!"

Ray and Irma Ziff of Thousand Oaks, Calif. celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary in March of 2008. Yakov Smirnoff  interviewed the couple for a television special in 2010. He asked them the secret to their longevity and Irma piped up, "Don't go to bed angry--stay up and fight!"

I saw a few other articles where Irma offered some "ground rules" such as: Don't snap at each other and don't walk or storm out of the room during an arguement, and don't be afraid to say you're sorry.
