47 Years of marriage.

Well Jim and me made it too 47 years of marriage today. I have no idea how we did it. Could it be love? Could it be because we are stubborn? Could it be because we don't like change? Could it be because it was easier than getting a divoce? Could it be because both of us were too lazy for one of us to move out? Could it be because it was easier just too work all of the time and ignore each other? Maybe the sex was good? Maybe we just liked each other?

I think it could be all of the above at one time or the other. What ever the reason here we are 47 years later still together. Looking out for each other and doing most of the time good things for each other. I don't know about this love thing forever. You sort of slow down in old age. We don't yell at each other these days. Seems like a waste of energy, and pointless. If I don't like something that he is doing. I just go find something else to spend my time doing. I find it a lot easier just too ignore things I don't like. You sure are not going to change the man now. Just like he gave up trying to change me. Either you take each other just as you find that person, or you just get out.

One more thing. How do you know if you do find someone else, if that person might not be a whole lot worse than the one you already are with now? That green grass on the other side of the fence could have a lot of poison ivy growing in it.

I don't think I will either Bobby. You just can't replace some people.

Nice post, Ros.And congrats on the many years of marriage:)
I think the answer to your questions are 'all of the above.' I know they are for me, for the most part,lol.Course, I'm not married as long as you, but,I watch my parents and listen to my mother on our outings rambling on about dad, which gives me a window of either some form of relation, and,or, a window into what will come.((Shudders))..Baha!

I love your writing Ros.Your so real and down to earth.
