At 44 years of age for both, we bought a house. 8 years later we finally zipped on down to the courthouse 10 hours before flying off to Ecuador for 3 weeks. That became our defacto honeymoon and a colleague there helped us find her a really cool ring from a jewelry friend of his.

So technically 11 married years but it feels like….. oh never mind.

I must point out that while my big vice is guitars+, and a room full of various instruments- hers is houses. We now own 5 and rent out 3. So while my investments depreciate hers are doing the opposite.

And i do all the cooking. That’s one smart woman.

Oh yeah I'm sure. The subject matter is its own filter really.

39 years, as of last Friday (September 15).

We were both late getting to the altar...37yo for her, 34yo for me...and it was first time for both of us. But it seems to have worked out OK anyway.

36 years for us. Just got home from an anniversary trip to Rocky Mountain National Park, where we spent a few days on our honeymoon way back then.

Celebrated our 50th anniversary last Friday. Somehow, half a century doesn't seem long enough to cover all the adventures we've had during our time together.
