    ‎37 years ago I fell in love with the man of my youth- When we got married on this day -I said Yes, I do, and I will. 35 years later I now say Yes, I do, and I don't think so and its still working! Who would have ever thought! He is such a wonderful man and I'm so glad to have him! What about you-how long have you been married?

    Congratulations!! Awesome!!

    Coming up on 11 years. And I admire those who can say 25, 35, 45 & up. Would have been 25 if I had stayed married to first husband. But I know I wouldn't be as happy & content as I am with my DH of today.

    41 years and counting. I've now been married more than 2/3 of my life. Wow! Being stubborn sometimes pays off. :-D :-D And having great in-laws on both sides! :-D :-D

    29 years last month married. But our story goes way back. Met in grade 2, went to different schools for grades 3-8, went to the same High School and started dating in grade 10 and married the year after graduation. So we have been together for nearly 35 yrs and have known each other for about 42.

    Tinks mom and Up North-I was so young too! We starting dating when I was almost 16. Married three months after my 18th birthday. My dad was hoping I would come to my senses and not marry so he made me wait until I was 18. Then 31 years later he thanked my husband for taking such good care of me and being a wonderful person. What a dad!

    I've been married to my best friend for 36 years. We had been dating for 6 months when we got married. I love him even more now than when we got married.

    We recently celebrated our 35th anniversary last month. It's been a good marriage and look forward to many more years together.

    14 1/2 years and counting, I dont regret that day and doubt I ever will. He is my better half for sure. There isn't a day that goes by that I dont remind myself how lucky I am to have him in my life. I worked hard to not scare him away and it pays off every day.

    23 1/2 of the best years of my life! Had I stayed married to my first husband, would have been 38 years. Like I said, the best 23 years of my life!
