By Lizzy Francis

By all accounts, Marty and Dana Lam have a very happy relationship.

The couple, who lives in Phoenix, have been together for four-and-a-half years.

They also run a business together and are very much in love.

It’s taken work, of course, to make sure it stays that way.

Dana is divorced and has two teenage boys, aged 15 and 19, from her previous marriage.

Marty has never been married and has no kids.

Moving in together was a transition for everyone.

For one, Marty had to adjust to living with a new family dynamic.

For another, he and Dana needed to take measures to avoid the dreaded ‘roommate phase’ as well as the trappings of Dana’s first marriage.

How do they make it work? They say daily bonding rituals, casual walks, and a lot of sexts help as do weekly dates and good communication habits.

Here, Marty and Dana talk about what makes their relationship work, the priorities they can’t let slide, and the big lesson Dana learned from her first marriage that’s helped them thrive.
