I remember at our 25th anniversary party, one of our younger neighbors asked us how we had stayed married so long. I told him it was because we could never afford a divorce!
There have been times when I would have gladly sent Irv "to the moon" and I'm sure there have been more times when he would have liked to have shipped me off somewhere....anywhere, but as the years go by, we grow more and more comfortable, and find it easier to overlook the other's imperfections. Things that would drive us crazy years ago, we don't even bat an eye at these days. I like to look at marriage as an adventure....always a new challenge....always changing.
So, our hair keeps getting grayer, our wrinkles are getting wrinkles, the pounds gather in not so flattering places, we have become very attached to our routines, we go to bed ridiculously early, we often forget things we use to remember, we rarely remember that we already told that story the day before, we sometimes move a little slower, but we are together. It's funny to think that we have been together since we were kids, and I truly can't think of anyone I would rather share this adventure called "marriage" with.
Happy Anniversary Irv!
