I have it on good authority that one member of the “aged” couple you talk about has put the brakes on traveling so much. Now, although the other member might imply otherwise, he knows it’s the right thing for them at this point. I also know that she was getting a bit weary of the cruises, but . . . and this is big . . . she is looking forward to the possibility of a cruise and some travel next spring, even excited about it. She thinks it should be special because they will celebrating the fiftieth year of their decades loooooong marriage.
That couple is quite different from each other. You, Jill and Tony, may be more alike. I don’t know, but if you are attracted to astrology, it might be interesting to consider that they were born on opposite sides of the chart while you both were born in December.
Okay, enough about them. I have read that couples who marry for a specific reason like physical attractiveness, sex, sense of humor, or intelligence are likely to stay together. I don’t remember where I read that, but yesterday there was an article in the Washington Post by Deborah Tannen. She says she thought her father should have married another woman but after examination has changed her mind. The following from her article resonates with me–
“Lasting love comes less from having chosen the perfect partner than from the accumulation of days spent side by side, caring for and talking to each other, and something my parents did a lot: laughing together.”
Fiftieth year!!!! Congratulations to “that couple.” Lol! Clearly, they are the true relationship experts.
Love the quote you ended your comment with. How true!
Also would like to say that I listened to Jill and Tony’s podcast (on Listenable) about Empathy. It was wonderful. Keep up the good work, guys.
Awww, thank you, Mary. Your comments and thoughts mean a lot to us.
