When Rita Smith got married at the age of 19, she could only hope for a happy, fulfilled marriage. She of course, couldn’t have known just how good it would be.

 “Did I know that this marriage would be so wonderful,” she questioned. “No, I didn’t know that.”

Tales of marriages faltering or becoming stale seem to dominate the narrative of long-term love. Luckily, Smith, affectionately known as Mrs. Rita on social media, is a refreshing voice among the noise. She and her husband have been captivating hearts online with stories of enduring love and sizzling intimacy. Their videos have spread like wildfire, challenging stereotypes and proving that marriage can truly be a journey of everlasting joy and passion.

With nearly five decades of matrimony under her belt, Smith stands as a beacon of hope for couples young and old, defying the notion that as time passes, the spark inevitably fades.

43 Years of Enduring Love

With Valentine’s Day marking an impressive 43 years of marriage for Smith and her husband, it’s evident that theirs is a love story for the ages.

“When I got married at age 19, that’s when it all came out. I’ve always been that person but I’ve always been comfortable talking about him and sharing sex scenes,” Smith reflected.

Their comfort with intimacy wasn’t just innate. It was nurtured over time, cultivated through open communication and a shared commitment to keeping the flames of desire burning bright.

Throughout their union, Mrs. Rita and her husband have weathered storms together, including her battle with endometriosis. After getting surgery to help with the pain, she couldn’t be sexually active for a few years although they typically had sex 7 days a week.

Despite the challenges, their bond remained unbreakable, fortified by unwavering support and a deep-seated devotion to one another. She knows that he could’ve found intimacy elsewhere but instead, he stayed by her side, ensuring she got better.

“He kept praying for me,” Mrs. Rita recounted, her voice filled with gratitude. “I’m telling you God just saw me through.”

The Sexual Excitement Doesn’t Stop at Any Age

At the center of their enduring passion is a mutual respect for each other’s desires and a willingness to explore new horizons together.

“Both of us love sex, not just me, right?” Smith emphasized. “It’s just my personality, and having him as my man and knowing me. That’s the thing about marriage; learning and knowing your spouse.”

Smith says both she and her husband bring exciting ideas to their sex life. One of her biggest mottos is that marriage is not one-sided. Both parties should be giving equal energy to not only the dynamic of their relationship but the intimacy as well. For this couple that energy is expressed in a variety of ways. Smith says sometimes her husband buys her sexy lingerie and tells her that he wants to see her in it, which excites her. Alternatively, she likes to role-play. Smith dresses up and distracts him while he is in his man cave at home. All of the fun they have sexually makes Smith feel ageless.

“I don’t feel old, I feel vibrant. I feel loved. I’m happy I get to lay up a lot,” she laughed.

Getting That Happily Ever After

When asked about the challenges of intimacy as they’ve aged, Smith remained resolute.

“I really honestly feel like I’m 19 all over again,” she declared, her spirit undimmed by the passage of time.

Through sickness and health, laughter and tears, their love has remained a steadfast beacon, guiding them through life’s ever-changing tides.

Pay attention to who you’re married to, work in your marriage, don’t let it be a half thing… Work together, pray together, and I guarantee you, you’ll surpass 43 years,” Smith warmly advised.

Although in this day and age, the idea of a forever romance is plagued by cynicism and doubt, Smith’s story serves as a testament to the enduring power of love. Through her TikTok videos, she continues to inspire countless individuals, reminding all that with faith, commitment, and a whole lot of love, happily ever after is not just a fairy tale ending but a beautiful reality waiting to be embraced.
