You just did: “Con­grats, it isn’t easy, you guys made it work,” and scene.

You can also list the good things you’ve taken away from their mar­riage. Such as: (1) You! haha. (2) Ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the power of com­mit­ting to some­one.

(3) An un­der­stand­ing that mar­riage shifts and grows and changes in its own ways — and if any­thing, it’s the ef­fort you put in that gets the last word.

Brain­storm­ing your own list might even tweak the way you view your par­ents, an un­ex­pected bonus.

And if you think of it more as a toast than a speech, then a lit­tle wit will get you out with­out say­ing too much.
