One and done. Remarriage is "the triumph of hope over experience". I dont know who said it, but once you''re past the age of having kids, it seems pointless to me.

How many times have you been married?

Just once. Things worked out very well for my wife and I.

Twice.... The 1st time, I was 22... It lasted 7 years.. The 2nd time, I was 78, but we'd been together for over 40 years, when we finally set sail on the sea of matrimony...

Man I canít imagine how it must be to end things with someone that has been with you most of your life. Divorce after 30 years thatís just hard for me to digest and Iím just a spectator here. Happy you have 16 happy years so far now.

First marriage at 19 did not work out. I was just starting a career and going to school at the same time. She was no more mature than I but was bound and determined to have children. After a couple years, we both came to realize what a mistake we'd made, and by mutual agreement, parted before any irreparable damage had been done. Fast forward 6 years, and I met a marvelous woman at work. We were both health care professionals so there was a common reservoir of experience that made it really made it easy to understand each other. We shared a love of the outdoors, a respect for life in all forms, a robust sex drive, and a deep appreciation for humor. Oh, there've been times when it was pretty rough between us, but with a willingness to talk and mutual respect we always found a way to resolve our differences amicably. We have no kids, and I think that really helps. Anyway, we just celebrated our 50th anniversary last week. Pretty sure the big dirt nap is the only thing that will separate us.

Just once for me. Now, my wife had to go through a practice husband before she got it right. Those are her words when someone asks, not mine!

My answer to people we're out with socially is "not long enough", which never fails to get the other husbands in trouble. Good times!

Judy and I got married on August 4, 1971, have 2 children and 2 grandchildren and are still hanging in there together after 52 years. We are the complete opposite of each other in almost everything we think and do. We each have our own household duties and pretty much do our own things throughout the day. Once or twice a week we do things together, or with friends, and those times are always very nice. She is smart, good looking and knows everything. I now know what to look for in my second wife. (wishful thinking)

Skipping past the past ... moving on to the McKnight Reader's Digest version.

In 1982 I met a man who proposed to me right after we met. I declined. He bought a ring stating on the first night he knew I was the one he will marry. I again said, "No." I let him know we had nothing in common. I was not interested. "Thanks, but no thanks." He called daily. He came to my apartment daily seeking only a bit of time. An hour? Ten minutes? He went on his way day after day returning to my door and/or calling the next day. He was determined to change my mind. I was determined to not be available. He took me out for coffee many times. Somehow that impressed me. In due time he became my best friend. We bounced ideas off each other all the time. We did not always agree. He had his interests. I had my own. We talked and finally shared timed for 2 months. Still I found nothing in common. I had no desire for a fancy car or a mansion. He seemed to want lots of new stuff all the time.

On the wedding day as we signed the final papers. He asked if I knew why he married me. I said, "Maybe you like me."

He said, "Yeah, and I don't want to drink another cup of coffee in my life." I still drink my share of coffee to this day.

We found a reason to own a wood shop. McKnight Guitars is something we both enjoy. He does his part of which I stay out of the sound board. He stays out of my designs. Many times we have toured the world's amazing lands from our own chairs in our own family room. I have had guitar designs in my head and he originally declined building guitars. That idea didn't go away. Neither did he.

Married 41 years.
