I think Bob and I get the newlywed prize. It was only 14 years ago that he lured me into his hottub and hypnotized me

As of yesterday, Deb and I have been together 29 years. We spent our "anniversary" this past weekend in the Smoke Hole area in Cabins WV. It was pretty nice except for the 300 acre forest fire. Our wedding anniversary will be Dec 1st.

 Marriage is a lot of compromise. Two people that really love each other can find a way to make it work. I understand the moderator(s) will probably delete this post, but I'm going there anyway. One of the biggest reasons we have lasted though is our faith in God and Jesus Christ. Without that, we would have called it quits long ago. When we took our vows, we took them literally, to love, honor, and cherish, better or for worse, 'til death do us part.

     Raymonda and I were together for 58 years. She has been gone now for 11 months.  We dated 3months and 1 day and married.  Lot of friends figured we HAD to get married.. Sure enough, 6 1/2 years later we had our 1st child.  I was 26 , she 24 when we married.

Reading about all the long time marriages here, it looks like RV'ing does a marriage well. With all the divorcing going on for the past couple of decades, it's refreshing to see marriages holding up well. :)

We will hit 56 year this July.  Yesterday I was wearing a shirt that my wife made for me last year.  I got a compliment on it and I told them that my wife, who was with me, had made the shirt.  They found that hard to believe.  She really does a custom job!! It is a designer pattern.  When I told them that she had been making shirts for me since I was 16 years old, they really didn't believe me.  It's true.  Last year we were up in the Amish country of PA and I picked out some great material.  Now there are three more shirts in the making.  I don't know why she has all of them in work at the same time...but the last thing I'm going to do is complain.............

We'll celebrate our 56th anniversary on Dec. 1st.  It's been quite a ride and neither of us would change it for anything!  It's amazing that two people from different parts of the country and from different backgrounds found one another and made it permanent!  I'm lucky to have found someone who supported me in doing things I might not otherwise have done.  And, of course, I've returned the favor by helping Jerry in his endeavors.  We've been a good team together!  As to RVing, we have to be best friends, able to have fun together, and able to laugh - or we wouldn't survive long in an RV!!  But I see we're not the longest married.  Congratulations to you other couples with long marriages.

Here are two photos taken 50 years apart, on Dec. 1, 1962 and Dec. 1, 2012.

We just celebrated 32 years on February 15th.  Guess we are doing something right since we didn't kill each other last year during our 14,000 mile trip to Alaska and back to Florida. Very different spending all of that time together than how it was when we both worked full time and raised 2 boys.
