    This is indeed an inspiring story. It reminds me of a girlfriend who married about the same age as you did. She has been married now almost 20 years, has eight of her own biological children and her last two were twins. You may have more in common than you initially think! We are each evolving to expand on our sense of love.

    I learned something new “make dates” I have to try that it makes a lot of sense.
    I also have to ad one very important thing – at least in my marriage- communication, you have to have good comunication.
    Great post. Thank you!
    Be loved!

    Hi Tess,

    Just learnt 12 strong points from your blog. I feel respect towards you because of the life you living and the real experiences you’ve shared here. Specially I like the idea that ” sad times and hard were our teachers.” A lot there to learn from you.
    Thanks a lot.


    Tess January 28, 2009 at 9:03 am

    Thanks so much for your thoughts and comments. I value your time spent on my blog.

    I knew Karen 2 weeks when I asked her to marry me and 5 weeks after that we were married. In June, we will have been married 37 years. I don’t know that I could make a list of how we made it work. For me, it was that I always took the vows seriously, I never placed anything or anybody else more important than her, and she’s always been my “bestest” of friends.

    Belated congrats on your anniversary!

    Sounds like we have a little something in common! I think you just made your list plus the benefits.
