tnmtgrl:

Thursday is our 35th wedding anniversary...I have to work.... so we started celebrating today...when my DH asked me what I wanted to do I told him I really wanted to go shoot so we spent the morning at the gun range, then went out to a nice lunch and tomorrow we will go to dinner. As we were driving home today he looked over at me and asked me why we were still together when all our siblings have had at least one marriage fail...I said I didn't know but that I thought it was funny cause everyone thought we wouldn't last this long.

Tnmgrl, they said the same thing about DH and I. So far it's been 34 years and still going strong.  Happy anniversary and enjoy the good times. They're the ones worth remembering.

I married my DH at the age of 16 (he was 20), and everyone also said we wouldn't make it more than a couple of years.  Next month we will celebrate our 47th anniversary, and we survived his tour of duty in VietNam, some mild PTSD, and all of the normal trials and tribulations of marriage.  It hasn't all been smooth sailing, but we have survived it.

Today we spent all day driving around Lake Tahoe and showing my second cousin (first time we've ever met) all the sights of the beautiful lake.  We took DD1's in-laws with us...they have viewed the south shore of the lake, but never the western and northern sides of the lake where all of the really expensive homes are.  Stopped and had lunch at a restaurant which is right on the beach and we actually got to wade in the cool water.  Today was cooler than it has been this week at least, overcast and a few minutes of light rain, but only in the 80's instead of the 100+ we've had all week.  A good day, but glad to be home and resting.

Is, sorry to hear you're not feeling well, but I'm glad to hear you are doing something about it.  Sounds like you have the right attitude. Do what you have to to deal with it so you can get on with your life. Hang in there.

It's funny how those "Made in Heaven" marriages everyone predicts will last usually don't, but the ones predicted to last a few months make it to the end. Maybe it's a hidden stubborn streak in some? My husband and I are 26 years apart (he older) and my mom gave us 6 months. Now at each anniversary (of which there have been 15) we laugh about how many times longer we've lasted than 6 months! Congrats and hope for many more!

Jen, Congratulations on your Anniversary.  Next month, DH and I celebrate number 45.  No one thought we'd make it either.  I was 19 and he was 21 when we  married.  We've had our ups and down but mostly ups.  We're now both retired and enjoying the fruits of our labors. 

Enjoy your life together.

Congrats to Jen on your 40th anniversary on Thur.

anyways, to all who have lasted more than 25 years with their spouses (we'll celebrate 41 yrs in 12 days) I heard one underlying truth n everyone's posts - we survived, we had our ups and downs, we didn't give up.  and isn't that the real secret to a long marriage - you just don't quit!  you work things out, laugh together, cry together, suffer and endure but stay together and grow old together.  

I applaud all you who have lasted, actually, this is the best accomplishment in your life.  One of our preachers used to say the best thing to give your child was a mother and father who loved each other.  How true!  

"I'm just a poor soul who's intentions are good.   Oh, Lord, Please don't let me be misunderstood."

Is,  I know just what you are talking about--have been there myself-- and with the thought of not wanting to take more meds, but just get over that thought and do it.  It helps a great deal being able to deal with life, and its ups and downs,  more easily.    Good luck.     Ginny

 Is, sorry to hit you upside the head, but, have you not read what myself,, and others here, have said? Meds cover the symptom NOT the underlying cause. My Dr. won't prescribe for depression/anxiety with out a psych counsult. Fix the PROBLEM. Don't turn to drugs to cover the effect of the problem. Get tough, girl. Go get counseling and DEAL WITH IT.
