John I wish you and the saint the very best I have to offer - congrats!
So what would be the next real mile stone, 60 years or is it 65 year married? Either way I hope the two of you get to celibrate both of those as well.

This Ground Hog Day we will have 34 years in so we've got a ways to go to catch up..

50 YEARS to the SAME woman??? VERY, VERY nice!

I've got 47 years under my belt - 25 to #1 and almost 22 to #2. Does THAT count - in the "total"?

Take her to that "Eat And Get The Hell Out!" place for the special occasion!

Regards,

My Wife and I, made it 50 years, 4 months, 10 days, 10 hours. Heart attack. That was
9 1/2 years ago. Believe me when I say, Tell her you Love Her every day. If she passes 1st she will know that you loved her, if you pass 1st, she will always have that memory.

Congratulations! That is a milestone to brag about. To get there you not only have to live a fairly long life, you have to learn to get along with a spouse for a long time. You have done well.

Congratulations, 50 years is impressive, I know a lot of people that long, and not many stayed married to the same woman that long. I got married 45 years ago, but it only lasted 5 years..
