Me & My Hubby Meme.......

Bella tagged me for this meme, sorry for the delay Bella. I have to tell you eight things about me and MWM, here goes.....


1. MWM and I met when I was 14 and he was 15 - that was 43 years ago. We split up for eight years - he got married, I didn't.

2. We met only once, in passing, during the eight years we were apart. When we met again we stayed together- that was 35 years ago, we have been married 33 years in December.

3. We are both Scorpios.

4. MWM is the quiet one, I like to party!

5. I love savoury, MWM loves sweet.

6. MWM is calm, I have a temper.

7. I used to smoke, MWM has never smoked.

8. We love each other more now than we did 43 years ago, though I didn't think that was possible.



I'm not going to tag anyone - if you feel like having a go please feel free, but let me know so I can check yours out - I'm nosey!

I'm off out today, for lunch with friends, will catch up with you all tomorrow. Have a great Sunday.

Linda said...

That's just the sweetest thing and this is the type of love that I have always wished that I could find - someone that you love more each and every day no matter how long you've been together. My parents were like that and I've often wondered if they knew just how lucky they were. I think they did.

Have a great Sunday!

Josie Two Shoes said...

Wow... a for real love affair! What a nice story to start the week off with! Congrats to both of you for finding each other and making it work!

Miss Understood said...

I just love happy endings. I know it takes lots of work...but well done for making it. People like you are my heroes. x

CS said...

Sweet meme. I spite of being divorced, I can say I'd have only a nice list to write about my ex.

Akelamalu said...

My pleasure Bella :)

Akelamalu said...

That's just the way we feel about it Ruth. x

Akelamalu said...

Aw thanks Shaz. :)

Akelamalu said...

Hope you do a review about the film Cream, after you've ripped all your hair out of course! ;)

Akelamalu said...

Glad to hear you're feeling better marmie, nice to see you back. :)

Akelamalu said...

Akelamalu said...

Yours is a true love story too buffalodickdy, thank you for sharing that. :)

Akelamalu said...

I count myself extremely lucky Linda to have found such a love.

Akelamalu said...

Aaah thank you Josie, I'm blessed.

Akelamalu said...

Yes we do work at it miss u but when you have something that's good you don't want to lose it. :)

Akelamalu said...

Oh cs what a shame it didn't last when you have obviously got such good memories :(

ciara said...

ok...i'm still trying to figure out how a scorpio can be 1)quiet and 2)not have a temper as i am a scorpio as well...are you sure your hubby is a scorpio? lol

i'll do my meme bout me n hubby here if u don't mind:
1. we have both been married once before
2. i have 3 children..ages 20, 10, and 8. he has 1 age 12
3. husband LOVES food-i do not. tho the size of my body probably looks like i do lol
4. we met via the internet *gasp* lol
5.we will have been married 3 years this Nov. 14th.
6. husband smokes, i don't. however, he does not smoke around me, the kids, or inside the house.
7. husband is a conservative republican, i am more of a liberal with no declaration of party.
8. our parenting styles are VERY different, but we try to meet in the middle (blended families-gotta love em, eh? lol)

ciara said...

p.s. that is wonderful you have been married so long. so

and you, too, buffalodicky.xo

Akelamalu said...

Loved reading your answers ciara.

MWM is definitedly a Scorpio and he is definitely a LOT quieter than me. His birthday is 26th October so he is probably a bit Libra.

Pig in the Kitchen said...

There should be a 'married for bloody ages' award to put on your sidebar! Congrats...and I reckon - in all my Pigly wisdom - that opposites do well together, you seem quite opposing!
I like your hair by the way!

The Rotten Correspondent said...

boy, I just love a good love story. I have to say, the older I get, the more I believe in the opposites theory. Maybe not total opposites, but different enough to stay interesting to each other. Congrats to you both!

Akelamalu said...

Aw thanks Pig. It does seem like we're opposites - but we agree on much more than we disagree! :)

Akelamalu said...

Thanks rotten correspondent - keep things interesting yes, that's our motto! ;)

julia said...

That's a great meme, Akelamalu! I'll definitely be borrowing it soon! My husband and I are both Scorpios as well, and though we're only 15 years into it, I feel the same as you do - we're closer now than ever. I have a hunch it may have to do with the Scorpio mind meld thing.

Akelamalu said...

Oh that's interesting Julia! I do agree with you about the Scorpio mind thing. My very best friend is a Scorpio and we are like twins!

T*mmy said...

Congrats on your award...and I enjoyed your memes!

Akelamalu said...

Thanks T*ammy. :)
