Anniversary Weekend- Again.......

June 2nd, 1973 I became a married man. I was 20yrs old, she was 19. At those ages you would assume we "had " to get married. Wrong. We met when I was 17 and she was 16 on the first(and only!) blind date I ever went on. It wasn't love at first sight, we were a needed component for a double date (my buddys' girl was not allowed to single date) and as I loved to bowl, and as I had hormones in overdrive I went along with it. Blind date- by the time I had regained my eyesight, it was too late-we were going steady! 2 yrs at the local Junior College each, and then engagement, with marriage a year later.
After this many years, getting a present is something we openly discuss, because we both have stuff we literally have never used! We plan to go out with friends who married a month after us, to an out of town country inn for dinner Sat. night. I've been told the place isn't that great, but I guess that's not the reason we're going-is it? 34 years..... The guy in Shawshank got less time than I did...

Happy Anniversary!!!

Dude, that's a long time! You and your wife must be what is right with marriage.

MikeM- Thanks! We talked with our finacial adviser recently, and he said he's pretty sure if we stay together, we'll have enough to retire someday! He also said most people who murder their spouses don't get away with it.....

Happy Anniversary, darlin'.

It's amazing to me that you could meet at such a young age and still be together. What's your secret?

buffalodickdy said...

Finn- No secret, just communicate and make sure the goals you both envision are still the same. We act more like a comedy routine than a married couple these days!

Happy Anniversary Uncle Buff (and Auntie!)

Have a splendid weekend! It's couples who have lasted this long (and haven't killed each other) that keep me a hopeless romantic. ;)
