  • 35 Years...and counting!

    Today, Heidi and I have been married 35 years.

    What a long and wonderful road it has been. So many terrific and tragic memories. So much we have shared.

    Pressed between the pages of a photo album we have a latent image of us then. Young, strong, wrapped in our jean jackets and with hair of competitive lenghts. Ready to take on whatever the world was going to throw at us.
    In retrospect, we've done OK.

    Side by side we have buried parents, and built our home.

    We held each other tightly at the hospital bedside of our 18-month-old child as she battled spinal meningitis, and watched on in horror as she was given the last rites. We continued to watch as she grew stronger and despite everything every doctor told us, survived to grow into the most beautiful daughter any parents could wish for.

    Together we have shared the love and devotion of a haft dozen wonderful pets.

    Together we have seen each other through debilitating mishaps, and medical scares.

    Together we celebrated the achievements of each of our respective careers.

    Together we have somehow managed to do everything we set out to do.

    Tonight we will head out for dinner and celebrate, and from there move ahead to the rest of our years together.

        About the only thing that could top the 2007 bear challenge is 35 years of marriage. Congrats on the milestone and may you have another 35 to share together.

                    Impressive.

                    When 50% of society can't even manage a single digit sum, your sum is impressive.

                    I personally think people that are responsible for key decisions in society should have been married at least something like 20 years. If a person can remain committed to a single person for 20+ years, then they have proved they understand long term commitment.

                    Granted, sometimes the person is on the receiving end of dealing with a partner that has no capacity for long term commitment.

                    So being able to choose wisely is also demonstrated by long term successful marriages. And I know several people that sure can't pick at all wisely

                    Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
                    I didn't for a long time either.

                      Wow. How wonderful. This is what most of us set out to achieve, but most fail in the attempt. I really hope and pray I will be so fortunate.

                      Very nice. You are a lucky man

                      Congratulations !!

                        Congrats man! That is really something to celebrate, though I suspect the trip down memory lane as you enjoy your day will be the best part! I haven't even been alive 35 years, so that sounds like a really long time!

                            Congrats! It sure sounds like life have been good to you n' your wife. Your situation today with 35 years of marriage seems to be quite uncommon with folks out there that split after their first disagreement instead of being stronger by it! From what you're writing 'bout your life together you two must be soulmates and I'm glad to hear that your daughter won the battle.
