Not sure if any of our membership could possibly be a potential celebrant of having had or perhaps looking forward to having a 50th wedding anniversary, but regardless, I think you'll get a kick out of this person's story.
The Secret to a Long Marriage
With a man soon to celebrate his 50th wedding anniversary at the church's marriage marathon, the minister asked Pete to take a few minutes and share some insight into how he managed to maintain his marriage with the same woman all these years.
The husband replied to the audience, "Well, I treated her with respect, spent money on her, but mostly I took her traveling on special occasions."
The minister inquired, "Trips to where"?
"For our 25th anniversary, I took her to Beijing, China."
The minister then said, "What a terrific example you are to all husbands, Pete."
Please tell the audience what you're going to do for your wife on your 50th anniversary."
Pete said, "I'm going to go get her."
James, my friend -- as a happily married lady of 40 years and having been spawned from parents who were married for 67 years, I hope to make it to those 50 years with this same incredible man to whom I am betrothed. But, I can promise you that there is no way in heaven that he would live me ANYWHERE without him unless there were extinuating circumstances beyond my control!
Tara I'm going on 41 years married and I would not trade for anything. I think the trick was to understand and obey your wedding vows. Plus whats funny is when we both got married we bought a dictionary and crosssed out the word divorce , so the word divorce was no longer in our dictionary. We still have that same dictionary. God bless my wife. Like I always said that she was a gift from God.and I thank God everyday. Without her I would not be here right now.
Tara Jane and Frank, congratulations to both of you. Frank, my mother always said that the secret was to never say the word divorce as once spoken it was something to consider and that was not a good idea at all. Yes, there are some situations where there is no choice for both parties well-being, but for the common day-to-day differences, work it out is the secret.

Why does a woman buy a bra and a pair of panties??????
Why is it called a building when its already built shouldn't it be a builting.?
Why do you park in a driveway and drive on a parkway?
Frank, excellent questions and see, we make no sense. I may have to research the pair of panties as I would like to know why. Same with pair of pants.
Glad to see Fun Fridays, or whatever they shall be called, is taking off. I had my share of smiles today on this page.
And for the two of you having been married over 40 and almost 50 years, that is commendable.
We have a "young couple" who play music for us at the Moose Lodge who where child hood sweet hearts and since their high school days, have been together. They are both about my age (that is 70) or within a year or so of it and not long ago celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. They celebrated it by taking the same cruise to Alaska that Carole and I just took this past summer. Only difference is that Carole and I would have to be married until 2050 in order to be able to celebrate that one. I'd be 108 and she'd be 104. Any of you want to join us? LOL LOL. We'll need help getting up the gang plank, I'm sure.
This couple, at their age, act like they are still young enough to dance the night away to the 50's -60's music that they entertain us with for 5 hours every Saturday night though and we sure do hope that they last a long time.
Enjoy your day.
