How long have you been with Your Significant Other?

   I've been with the same crazy women for 16 years, fortunately we don't live together, she lives in a Ford Explorer somewhere in the Texas Hill Country, wherever her Spirit(s) take her.  I've got her down to Bi-Monthly visits, same as my Humana Nurse, Life is Good.

Celebrating 37 years this December.  3 children, 6 grandchildren, 1 great grandchild and out of all of those we see one of our kids on a regular basis and one grandchild occasionally.  Life can sure kick you in the pants. Sad.  Oh, and we have a furry child that is way too smart for his own good...lol

Whew.  That's a long time and quite an accomplishment these days.  Congrats.

44 years and counting.  We met when we were 18 and both freshmen in college.  Two kids, one dog, no grandkids.

I met my wife at work we were both eighteen and the first date I took her on I told her I was going to put a ring on her finger, that was 44 years ago. Oh yeah we got married 6 months after that date.

30 years or so... told her I love her just a few minutes ago... I think she returned the compliment (not sure, my hearing ain't what it used to be, she may be cursing me)... So I blame my long marriage on my lack of hearing.

I decided when I was a teenager that I was too irresponsible to be a good wife and mother, so no marriage for me.  But I have had cats as long as 16 years.  Those relationships were often far better than any I've ever had with a guy, but they never lasted long enough. 

Anyway, for those of you who have been with the same guy or gal for a long time through thick and thin, I say, "congratulations, God bless you and may He grant you many more years together."
