    At St. Peter's Catholic Church in Toronto, they have weekly husbands' marriage seminars.

    At the session last week, the priest asked Giuseppe, who said he was approaching his 50th wedding anniversary, to take a few minutes and share some insight into how he had managed to stay married to the same woman all these years.

    Giuseppe replied to the assembled husbands, 'Well, I'va tried to treat her nice, spend money on her, but best of all is, I took her to Italy for the 25th anniversary!'

    The priest responded, 'Giuseppe, you are an amazing inspiration to all the husbands here! Please tell us what you are planning for your wife for your 50th anniversary?'

    Giuseppe proudly replied, " I gonna go pick her up."

    ;) ;)

    Funny. I think committing to one another and staying committedis the main thing that has kept us married for 48/1/2 yr.s. We've had no serious problems.

    I had 39 and one half years with my best friend, my husband.
    I did like one older lady told me when I said I was getting married, and
    read the book on it she gave me several times. Like the book suggested. I treated him like a dog. There was even a movie about it, called "When A Man
    Answers".

    Don't get me wrong, think about it. Husbands by the thousand go
    missing every year, some are drug back, and lots of them are never found. Dogs get lost, and they come home on bleeding paws, grateful for home and a loving family.

    When we call a dog, we praise him when he comes. When lots of us call
    our husbands, all we can say is "Dammit, Harry, didn't you hear me calling?"
    We worry about the dog's health, we walk him for exercise, we constantly
    tell him he is marvelous. All the while, some husbands are sitting at the TV,
    knowing he is ignored and only talked at when someone wants something.

    So, like the family dog, I met him at the front door when he came home from
    work, with a kiss, the evening paper, a big tall glass of ice tea, and some time
    by himself. (I'll admit that lots of times I went and fried up a piece of bacon to make him think dinner was on its way, so I could have time to stare into the freezer and figure out what to fix!!!!

    But always, he was the rock that held together the family, and even though
    he's been gone three long years, I'll miss him always. We may not have had
    riches, but we had kids, dogs, cats, music and books all through our home.
    Our kids grew up with all of this, and even now tell me what marvelous memories they have of growing up.

    Hubs and me have 38 years. Communication, respect and remember those vows you took and most of all love. Plus I remind hubby that this is a partnership, I'm 51% and he is 49%. So far, so good.
