Aww!! :heart: Happy anniversary!!!

Dh and I celebrated our anniversary yesterday across many miles (he's deployed). We've been married for 10 years. I hope and pray that one day I'll be able to make a post like yours and proudly say that we've been married for 40. What a wonderful milestone!!!

Congrats!! The DH and I celebrated our 40th in January. Welcome to the Married Forever Club!! LOL! :D

We've been married more than twice as long as I lived with my parents. We've been married longer than any of our family members, brothers, sisters, cousins, and neither of our children have friends with parents married as long. One of the attorneys I work for could be my son and when I recall an historic moment from the past (the assassinations of the 60's, the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, the Civil Rights movement, Watergate), no one I work with has any clue what I'm talking about.

I find it amazing that I could be married that long. I don't feel any different than I did as a bride. Strange, though, occasionally I catch my grandmother looking back at me from the mirror. :rofling:

Happy Anniversary - a marriage like yours truly is an inspiration to us "newlyweds"!

I wish you many more happier years together! :heart:

Thanks --all of you!! It's was a very nice evening and we don't FEEL OLD! But we're 40 years older--that's for sure!!

(Cheesiesmom, believe me--I remember all those things you spoke of--and more--most people don't believe that 7there are people "our age" who've been married for this long.)) Still--we have right many friends who have --- but a lot of them are on their 2nd and 3rd marriages, too. I'm just thankful that we're not. There's something very comforting about being this comfortable with someone--not boring--just comfortable!! :sunny:

Wow!! It's my parents' 40th anniversary today too! :cheering:

They were high school sweethearts and are STILL totally in love and best friends, even after 4 degrees between them (kids in tow), 2 kids with 5 degrees between them and two grandkids.
