Marriages can last - mine has 47 years
Here's some bubble wrap that has kept my husband and me together for forty-seven years. We said our vows February 18, 1962, and we'll celebrate still being friends, lovers, and together. We stay loving each other even during the times we might not like each other very much.
It has to be love when Robert says I'm still as beautiful as on our wedding day.
He promised me at least fifty years forty-seven years ago, and he's doing his best to keep that promise. I think it's time to change that promise to at least seventy-five.
Marriages can last, but a lasting marriage takes lots of work, love, and pure stubbornness on the part of both people.
