My bride and I have been married for 36 years.

 

Some photos, (in relatively chronological order)

 

About 1977, (Christmas, I think)

I'm thinking early 1978

As we left for our honeymoon, (we actually drank that champagne as we drove to Carmel)

Probably 1984, (I'm guessing our son is about 5)

I think it's wonderful that there are so many of us here who have been married for a long time.... shows that we ARE committed!!

 

And TMan..... ONE of us looks like a movie star...the other looks like a horny little dog!

 

But like TC, I obviously married 'up'!

Congrats Rob to you both.

 

39 here to the same girl. She, of course, hasn't yet hit "39," so it's lucky we could marry prior to her birth. <chortle>

 

But as to the lines "the best is yet to come," that's a theft from Robert Browning:

 

Grow old along with me!

The best is yet to be,

The last of life, for which the first was made:

Our times are in His hand

Who saith "A whole I planned,

Youth shows but half; trust God: see all, nor be afraid!''

 

The poem's name is "Rabbi Ben Ezra," and Browning was dead and gone by the end of 1889.

 

By the way, it wasn't boy-girl romantic per se.

Here's one I've used. Credit the Immoral Bard, though, and not me... And usually I've ended the quote after "her infinite variety."

 

Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale

Her infinite variety; other women cloy

The appetites they feed, but she makes hungry

Where most she satisfies;

 

<grin>

Congratulations to you and the Mrs, DR! And a great display of your progression through time together. I'm always happy to see others (as many of you on here) going the long haul with their soul mate. Me and my bride will hit 33 in July. Love of my life.

 

And KRock - I think you mean Mutton chops (not Lamb chops... LOL!).

Congrats! I have half as many as you do with my wife, but I feel equally blessed. Although I still suffer from AMPS (Absent Minded Professor Syndrome), she's been slowly curing me over the years. For example, I can actually coordinate my attire about half the time correctly these days! When we first got married she'd get up early just to make sure I was dressed correctly (I left the house a lot earlier than she did).

Happy Anniversary to you and your wife! The very BEST of wishes for many more years if health and happiness!

 

As of August 4th of this year, my husband and I will be together for 23 years. We married on May 12th almost two years ago. (Yes, I guess that makes me the Poor, Southern New Jersey version of Shannon Tweed! [tongue] ). Seriously, though, like you I am blessed with an outstanding spouse who could have left many times due to the many medical issues I've had - but chose to stay. The past few months alone could have broken any man, but he still stands strong beside me. The rest of my life to this point has been rather crappy, but I feel like I hit the lottery the day he walked up to me and said "Hello".

Congrats Rob. My 25th is this September. I love the Fumanchu stash, I use to have one back in the day.
