Pictured are President Monson and Sister Monson as they celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.

In a general conference address, President Monson told of the advice he and his bride received on their wedding day.

"Our marriage took place just to the east of us in the holy temple," President Monson said in his address "Hallmarks of a Happy Home." "He who performed the ceremony, Benjamin Bowring, counseled us: 'May I offer you newlyweds a formula which will ensure that any disagreement you may have will last no longer than one day?

"Every night kneel by the side of your bed. One night, Brother Monson, you offer the prayer, aloud, on bended knee. The next night you, Sister Monson, offer the prayer, aloud, on bended knee. I can assure you that any misunderstanding that develops during the day will vanish as you pray.'"
