We will be married 45 years in November, I can't believe that many years have gone by, some very bad and some very good years. Sometimes it's been an uphill battle and sometimes we coast, but I've always enjoyed the ride. You have to remember to Always be warmed by each other's smile, always take time to walk and talk, always know deep down you're each others best friend, we've done the above all these years and here we are. When my daughter got married in April, I wrote a poem for her and included the above, I think its good advise.

Our 27th anniversary is on September 17. We met at the beginning of our senior year in college and were married the next year.
Seeing my grandparents celebrate their 50th the year before I met my DH made a huge impression on me and it was something that I really wanted to strive for. I was very fortunate to meet someone that I felt I could spend the rest of my life with and he felt the same (especially at age 21) and have thanked heaven above every day since we decided that we were right for each other.
We have had our "moments" (especially when we were younger), but worked through them and we don't regret a minute of the tough times.
One thing I learned: The bluebird of happiness does not fly up your nose on your wedding day, no matter how beautiful everything is on that day. The struggles were worth it and made us stronger!

Tomorrow is our 22nd wedding anniversary. It hasn't always been a bed of roses, tho he often does bring me roses. We take one day at a time and count our blessings. We consider ourselves lucky that we found each other. I was in my 40's and he in his 50's. We're looking forward to our 25th!

I think we should all give ourselves a big pat on the back.
I also think I want to print out all these responses so I can share our advice with the next young married couple I run into.
