  • I guess I'm just 'old fashioned'. When I married, I only knew that I would do anything for her. We met on the 14th of December, 1962. We went to the movies on the 16th. Missed seeing each other only one evening from then until we married on January 26, 1963. Death came for her on May 31, 2006. We were married over 43 years. I've known quite a few couples that were married for 'life'. Yes, some of the marriages were right out of a romance novel. Some were close to being a brawl most of the time. BUT, they made it work. How did my wife and I make our marriage work? Honestly, I've given it a lot of thought. After all this time, I know that we did a lot of 'give and take'. Other than that, I really DON'T know. I guess it was just LOVE.

  • The give and take comes from keeping in mind how your loved one held it together for you during a difficult time.

    One must present an example in the marriage. That is what I discovered. Texas, I am sure that you miss her terribly. What a blessing it was that you had all of those years together.

  • I had to fix a fact in this for my Aunt Norma. She was married 10 years to her first husband and 32 years to Uncle Bob.

    Thank you Kathy for pointing this out.
