My Parents and 50 years
I'm out of town this weekend, driving over to my parents' home on the east coast of Florida. My folks have been married 50 years! Can you believe it?
And here I thought I deserved a medal for 25 years.
Seriously--the other day I told someone I'd been married 25 years and they gasped. Not because I don't look like I've been married that long, but because in today's marital climate, that seems like a looooooong time.
And so it is. But 50 years is half a century. My mom was seventeen when they married, my dad 20, so they've been married most of their lives!
Happy anniversary, M&D. Thanks for paving the way.
