    As the title says, I married my high school sweetheart 40 years ago today! :D

    I'm curious: who else out there in TDPRI-land has been married 40 years or longer? We hear all the time that our marital longevity is rare these days, but I seem to remember other threads about marriage where some other of my TDPRI brothers and sisters have been married a long time. So who's with me?

    I'm curious too about who else did it like I did. That is, who married young and has lasted? I'm not yet 60 years old, but I've been married these 40 years (and have 3 kids in their mid to late 30s, and 12 grandchildren). I was 19, my bride was 18. There were plenty of people that worried about us being young, but at this point we're clearly in danger of making it work. ;) So, who's with me in this?

    :cool:

    Congrats.

    We were 21 when we got married (and 20 when our daughter was born, but that's another thread). June 11 will be 12 years, so we're not doing too bad.

    Nothing on you, though.

    Thanks! I'm actually on here because she's taking care of some business before we watch a movie. My wife's a midwife, and she actually delivered a baby earlier today. One of her associates just call with a question about the newborn, so my wife's responding to that, and I had a little time on my hands. Naturally, I came here to kill time. :D

    Congratulations!
    I started a little later in age than you (23), but made it to 40 in 2010. Unfortunately, she passed away later that year.
    After about a year alone, went online and found a soulmate. We'll celebrate one year next Sunday.

    Congrats LG! That is quite an accomplishment!

    I'm your age, but unfortunately for me, when I was nineteen the love of my life was actually the infatuation of my life. I hate that when that happens, but then again I wouldn't be married to my soul mate like I am now so alls well that ends well.

    The next 40 are going to only get better.

    Congratulations, Larry, and to your wife. 32 years here, 33 in December. We're going to give it another 30 and see how it works out.

    I'm only at about 12 years, but my folks are at 45, so maybe that'll rub off on me a little. Congrats on your anniversary, Larry G and partner in crime!

    How many times do you think a guy will say "Yes, dear" in forty years?
