A look back 40 years after we said 'I do' and the advice that lasted
This is wonderful. And you were so beautiful on your wedding day.
Here's to many more years of "uninterrupted marital bliss". Well done, you two. Well done.
Maura -- this is beautiful, and an inspiration -- we are four years behind you!
Congratulations to you and Pete, Maura!
Being a fan of John Gottmann’s research...I find the ‘initial disliking’ fascinating...my parents met the same way..perhaps you proved organically that you knew how to manage conflict well..the biggest predictor of marital success...
We celebrated 50 years this summer. Our middle daughter made our 40th anniversary even more special when she chose it as her wedding day. As a retired Economics teacher, I love the Stock Market analogy! Congratulations on your essay and anniversary.
I was tickled to celebrate with you and bask a bit in the warmth and pleasure shared so naturally with kith and kin.
No Bull! 40 years of deep wisdom and understanding and love. You made my eyes all watery again.
I haven’t a clue how it all went so fast! Good for us for hanging in there!
Beautifully told. I love the occasional dress store with the sympathetic shoppers and I see that brave but nervous girl shopping alone. This is so lovely Maura. Forty-one years up myself, where does it go?
Congratulations — that's beautiful.
So beautiful...the words and the couple
Beautiful! The story, the bride, the dress, and Irene’s wisdom. In fact, I’m going to quote this to my son who is getting married next year. He works in banking and will appreciate the analogy!
Men are strange creatures sometimes. But, better late than never
