A rather special anniversary....

On 6th June (just gone) it was 40 years since MWM and I met (again).

 I say again because we actually met first in 1963 and were together for about 6 months then drifted apart. 

It was 8 long years before that wonderful night when we met again and we've been together ever since.

December 7th will be our 38th Wedding Anniversary.

Long Live Love!

Maggie May said...

Oh thats good that you got together for good after a gap in the relationship.
We also married in Dec and will have been together 49 years this year!

It is different today as people don't always stick together at the first sign of something going wrong...... but fortunately, many still do. I read somewhere that more people get divorced in the older age group than any other! Bit sad that.
heres to yours & mine.

Nuts in May

Linda said...

Just goes to show that you and MWM were meant to be and in the process, you get a double anniversary! Not a bad deal at all methinks!

Dianne said...

your wedding anniversary is my birthday
let's have a double party :)

happy day we met again
you guys are so romantic

Akelamalu said...

WOW 49 years Maggie, that's fantastic. I agree with you, young people don't seem to want to work at it like we have do they?

I think we were meant to be together too Linda :)

We'll share a cake on the 7th December Dianne :)

Pat said...

That is awesome...thirty-eight years of marriage on Dec. 7th! My husband, Jerry and I will celebrate our 36th anniversary tomorrow, June 19th.

So you've known your husband almost 50 years! That is so cool. Jerry and I have known each other 41 years.

Akelamalu said...

Yes we have known each other a very long time Pat and it was love at first sight, he just didn't realise it at the time! ;)
