A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Why shouldn't some marital relationships end?

I apologize, in advance, if I offend the marrieds here -- that is not the intent -- but, I saw this on Postsecret today and thought it connected in an interesting way to maryjane31's question about "Believe in love at first sight?"

It says (on the back) - "Love never dies, they say, and I am living proof of that, having been married 50 years and in love with someone else I can't have. Love never dies!"
