Golden wedding

They married on October 31, 1959.

We were among the family and friends who celebrated their golden wedding anniversary yesterday.

While their sons were proposing a toast to them I was reminded of the Spanish card which read:  Enamorarse es fácil, pero seguir enamorado es algo muy especial. To fall in love is easy, to continue to be in love is something very special.

Theirs has not been an easy life, they’ve had financial and personal trails, including the death of a child. But they have continued to be in love and it was both a pleasure and a privilege to celebrate that with them.

    A terrific achievement and they possibly had trials as well. To actually still be in love after 50 years is awesome we are closing in on that milestone and although my father said it wouldn’t last, sadly he won’t be here to see. Of course he may yet be proved right but the odds suggest otherwise.

    GD – Congratulations – I do hope you and Mrs GD get to the 50 year milestone.

    Some of us are lucky enough to get it right the first time.
