39 years tomorrow. Chose July 3rd so we could always run off alone for that night and not have to go to work the next day. That, and marrying her, are the only choices I made in my 20ís that make any sense to me today.

Funny or maybe not so funny how things slip away in our society. Anyway if you have hit the big 50 post it in pride.
Congrats!



Not 50 yet - only 45 - but working on it.

Assuming you were at least 16 when you go married, that makes you 103 at a minimum.

MANY congrats.

Depends on how you look at it, Guys ! Let's see ..... from a pure maths point of view .... I was 28 when I first got married, so that blows the 103 age conjecture !

Again resorting to pure arithmetic ..... both my wife and I were married to our first spouses for 21 years and we've been married for 45 years ..... soooooo ..... 21 + 21 + 45 = 87 ! Or maybe it just feels like it !

My parents' last anniversary was their 58th. Neither lived to their 59th.

For us, we celebrate two anniversaries each year: the one where we were legally married in a bureaucrat's office in Stafford County, VA (a magistrate) in May 1996, and in the Huguenot Church in Charleston, SC later that year in November 1996. Much like Europe, there was a civil wedding and a Church wedding. I prefer to celebrate the Church wedding - our vows before God in His house and before a congregation and blessed by our Lord - over some magistrate in his office making it "legal".

To be sure, the Huguenot Church is French Protestant, but answers to no authority other than to God and is the only one of its kind in the U.S. There was no Huguenot liturgy that covered this sort of marriage, as we were already legally married, but the pastor and the collective members made up a "Blessing of the Rings" ceremony (their first) which was far more meaningful to us as we said our vows before God and the congregation. It was that Church that also performed a funeral/memorial service first to my FIL less than a year later, and to my MIL two years after that. Before then, it had no service for cremated remains.

So this coming November is really our 50th anniversary (yeah, I know that's cheating) but that is how we celebrate our anniversaries. Neither of us will live to see a true 50th, as we're 73 and 68 years old respectively and both with serious medical challenges that will take us sooner than that.

Such is God's glorious life He has given us.

Congratulations to rep and all the others that have been blessed with long marriages. Only made it 15 years when my wife passed. Enjoy and cherish every moment, because it can all end unexpectedly in the blink of an eye.

I was blessed in seeing both sets of grandparents celebrate thier 50th plus anniversaries and my parents 60+ years. My older sister and husband will celebrate their 50th in a few days.

At my age, I don't know if I'll ever get married again. Getting to be too much of an independent cranky old geezer. If I do get married again, it may be more of a business agreement than anything else.
