Have you and your partner been together a while and yet you've still got it? We'd love to hear your secret.

Ross and Mary Grant have been married 65 years and have no regrets. Their secrets include sharing the same values and goals, and, as Ross Grants says, his wife's patience and fine cooking. 

Money doesn't seem to buy marital happiness if Hollywood stars' relationships are anything to go by. The seemingly besotted Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin couldn't go more than 10 years before their ''conscious uncoupling'', and  Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas recently announced their split after 18 years together. 

Do you have the secret to making love last? Or have you seen a relationship that does?

Are there any particular rules or truths that help you stay together? Any rituals? 

Perhaps you have faced a hurdle together that has strengthened your partnership, even as it has tested it? 

Share your experience with our readers and help us all keep the love alive a little longer. Don't forget to include a photo of you and your great love.
