    Just celebrated 19 years together

    When my mom and dad said "til death do us part" they really meant it.

    My wife's parents have both passed: She passed away in 2012, he passed away 2 weeks before thanksgiving last fall.

    They married in their 20's. Love at first sight. And they genuinely liked each other til the very end.


    I can say the same thing about my wife. Sure - lots of couples love each other, but over time, like seems to step aside to comfortable with.


    So what I am finding strange is that people are surprised and impressed by how long my wife and i have been together and the fact we are in our first marriage.

    I guess the sad reality is that people in my age group( born in the 70's) and younger just don't stay married. Reflecting on it, every couple that my wife and i knew have gotten divorced, some married again, then divorced again, and a few even gotten married a 3rd time.

    Marriage doesn't seem to mean anything to people any more. Or rather commitment doesn't mean anything anymore.


    So, long story short how long has yours lasted ?

    April 20th made 19 years for us and we are just getting started!

    Yes, you are just starting, by the time you reach your 49th like me, I will most likely not be around to say Happy Anniversary! I hope to be here though.

    Edit Note: You know that means I will be 100!
