Hello Ms. Viorst,
I have you to thank for saving my marriage on more than one occasion. I have been married over 35 years. Shortly before I married in 1987, a close friend gave me an article you wrote (in Redbook, I believe). The focus of the article was 10 important points to maintaining a successful marriage. One point was, “Never say any negative about your husband’s family members, even if he initiates doing so.” My husband is from South Africa and in the late 1980s the country was grappling with dismantling apartheid. His family who lived in South Africa experienced real fears and anxiety about the future. Often I thought of your pithy advise and refrained from making comments that would have been unhelpful and hurtful.

In the ensuing years and multiple moves, I have misplaced your article. I have searched extensively for it online, to no avail. Would you know where I might find a copy of the article? I would love to share it with others. Thank you so much.
