Congratulations - My wife and I are at 32 years and counting. It is nice to hear about other long term successful marriages. Along this line, bear with me for a quick anecdote. We were recently at a funeral for my best friends father. He and his wife had been very happily married over 65 years. While offering condolences his widow said that it was indeed "a sad day because they were finally starting to get along"!!!

Absolutely wonderful - my bride and I know exactly what she means.

I'll weigh in with my 32 1/2 years of wedded bluss as well.

My wife and I have been very happily married for 35 years, and I don't think that 35 out of 42 is all that bad a record.

I lost count of how many years I've been married, was I supposed to be keeping track? I like the old quote: "Marriage is like a visit that never ends and you're wearing your worst clothes." Think about it..
