I guess if anybody would know, it's the folks at AARP The Magazine.
The group's July & August 2007 issue has a story on Things To Know By 50.
Number 42 is How To Stay Married.
This article in "the world's largest circulation magazine" instructs poets to "pretend your relationship (marriage) is a road trip. Your wedding was the Holland Tunnel. Your life is the New Jersey Turnpike. Death is Philadelpia. Pretend there are no exits, only rest stops."
I've actually been to Philadelphia and I don't think it's that bad.
The Holland Tunnel a wedding. Wow. I know I'll never make it as a poet now.
