Secrets to a lasting relationship

TOM Anderberg and Sara Carkagis, both 29, have known each other most of their lives.

Growing up in the Blue Mountains, they met as 10-year-old classmates, dated in their teens and by 21, after a few years apart for study and travel, they were living together in inner-city Sydney.

They now own a place together, this year had a baby boy, Wolf, and are busily planning a December wedding.

In the shaky world of relationships, where Bureau of Statistics figures show one-third of marriages will end in divorce, their enduring partnership defies the trend.

So, what's their secret? "I guess we're just best friends," Carkagis says.
