Happy 18th Anniversary

Yesterday was our 18th anniversary. Yes, 18 years or marriage (21 years together). We have lasted 4.5 times longer than his first marriage. I'd say we're doing something right.

Anyway, I made a really nice steak dinner with garlic mashed potatoes and mixed veggies. Then we toasted each other with carbonated water. (Hubby gets really sick if he drinks alcohol.) I also made his favourite creme caramel for dessert. It was a pleasant evening.

Congratulations on 18 years of marriage! You obviously are doing something right if your marriage has been that successful! :-) I'm glad the anniversary dinner went well and you both had a pleasant evening.

Thank you

I think what I did right was marry the right person for me in the first place. I think we've had something like 2-3 arguments in 21 years. That includes when I almost left him as a way to force him to get medical help he refused to admit he needed. (Yes, he is a man!) Now, when I tell him he needs to do something, he grumbles and generally does it. He recognizes I have his best interests at heart.

To be honest, I think it helps that we are both pragmatists. Neither one of us fights to get his/her own way unless it is really important. Even then, we each see what is important to the other and bend as necessary.
