    We've grown old together and it's just better every day.. When we were young our love was more physical, but now it's far more romantic.. We have both mellowed and become more tender to each other, and really treasure the time we have together..

    Just wanted to tell somebody... Love grows as long as we live...

    Oh, how I envy you - that's exactly what I thought I had with my DH - for 36 years. It turned out that I had been wearing rose coloured glasses for a lot of that, when he left me for a 'friend' half my age, and I subsequently found out that he had cheated on me on and off for a good many of those years.

    I still miss what I thought I had, and I've been on my own for 11 years now. Sigh.

    Still, I have now made a different life for myself that I otherwise wouldn't have had, so all is not lost, it was just a painful transition.

    You are very fortunate. I hope you have many more happy/contented, healthy years together.

    Congratulations! :thumbup: :lol:

    Love to hear people stay in love. That's what I pray for in my marriage. We aren't spring chickens and it may have taken us along time to find each other, but I hope it lasts until the good Lord calls us home. I can't imagine a day on earth without him.
    Congrats and thanks for the post, it is up lifting!

    Dear bearisgray,
    I married very young the 1st time and it didn't last, which was a blessing for me. But I was single for 19yrs before I found my soul mate! I dated but had sworn to never marry again, it just happened neither of us were looking. I thank God everyday for bringing him into my life!...
    Just keep and open heart and remember there really our some good ones out there. Hang in there, he may be just around the corner!

    It does get better as you get older. I never knew how much I loved my DH until a very serious illness (stroke). Since then we have been so much closer, spend more time just talking, spend some time cuddling every morning.

    It was November when he was in the hospital and the TV was showing the usual round of pre-Christmas diamond ads. You know, with the young starry-eyed couple, he gives her a diamond and she tells him she loves him. It struck me as such a farce, you don't really know what love is until you have gone through a lot together, good times and bad.

    There was another patient in the hospital ward, a retired doctor who was much worse off than my DH. His wife was by his side constantly, they lived nearby but she only went home to shower, she stayed by his side all night. Whenever I saw them together, I thought, This is what love is.
