The wife and I are celebrating 41 years of marriage today.
Counting my first marriage of 19 years, I now have 60 years of marriage behind me.

Congratulations Frank. I'm creeping up there we're at 37, but what you've done is an accomplishment. The first step is sticking with it.

.

Congrats - you're ready, if not late, for the 3rd step of marriage...……….

The 1st step, during the 1st 5 years, is "anywhere sex". (couch, vehicle, outdoors, etc)

The 2nd step, from 5 to 25 years, is "bedroom sex" (Sat nite, in bedroom, shades drawn).

The 3rd step, over 25 years, is "hall sex" - which occurs when passing each other in the hallway, telling each other to get screwed...… :mrgreen:

Hi,

Congratulations, Frank! My sister and BIL also celebrate 41 this week, but they didn't go thru the "training exercises" you did. First time for both of them.

Congratulations!
We celebrated 44 on June 15. Four years ago I mentioned to a friend that my wife and I were going out to dinner for our 40th. He said "Oh, you've been married 40 years? Me too.....3 different women, but 40 years total." :-)

Congratulations, long term commitments hardly exist.

My parents were married for 63 years.

Working on the 2nd here.

Been married for 2 years to the woman I lived with for 22 years before we got married.

After 22 years we figured we can put up with each other, so we got married. (Officially)
