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

We're inspired by this story. Phyllis Putt was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease 13 years ago. Despite recommendations to put her into a care facility, her husband of almost 69 years Neville refuses to leave her side.

And 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. 

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.
