38 Years And Counting


Today Moe and I will have managed to stay married for 38 years . What a miracle ! We were talking about the day we were married last night . Remembering all the turmoil and drama of getting married . But the one thing we remembered the most is how much we wanted to marry each other .

Thank God whenever we have reached a bad time in the union , one of us has had the good sense to not give in to the temptation of divorce . NO MATTER HOW MUCH WE MAY THINK IT IS A GOOD IDEA AT THE TIME , lol !

It has been a amazing 38 years which has seen us through all sorts of good and bad times , richer or poorer , in sickness and in good health . Maybe these have been the easy years and the time ahead of us are gonna be the hard times ? Only time will tell .

38 years , WOW , I still can't get my head around that ! And I still love that man . That is the most amazing thing , to still love some one you have lived with for 38 years . Unbelievable !

This sounds amazing, first of all congratulations and a happy aniversary. Then, you have my respect for being hapily married (mashalla) for all these years. I hope that i will say that as well in 38 years, i only have three behind me now, so it is still a long way to go. I wish you more nice and peacefull years to come.

CONGRATS! You should be proud of yourselves. After 12 years of marriage I'm still in love with my husband, and I hope we make it to our 38th.

Congratulations to you both. Success in marriage is part about marrying the right person and part about knowing how to negotiate and compromise on the differences. But mostly I think it is about knowing how to open your heart and give love and support to each other. Sounds like you two have mastered it all. Best wishes for the next 38. A Fan in America
