A Major Milestone 25 Years and Counting

Recently the hubby and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. We squeezed out some time to go away for the weekend just the two of us. It was so nice to be together ALONE and just have fun. This does not happen nearly enough but I sure do like it when it does. I of course wanted to take out trailer but hubby insisted on a hotel. I said sure.


I feel sort of in a special club, having been married this long. It is a point a lot of marriages never get to. My husband is one of the good guys and I am so lucky to have him. He totally gets me and my odd ways and we really enjoy time together. But marriage is a lot of work and if both parties aren't able to keep the marriage and each other number one, than things can go awry.

Home, family and each other have been both of our focuses over the years and that has kept us centered and grounded. I hope I have at least 25 more years with my guy and that he always takes me camping. Lol!!!

I'll share our stay next time. The place was so lovely and close to our home so if you are in SoCal I would highly recommend it.

Congratulations and Happy 25th. Anniversary. It is a big deal to be married so long. I think people give up too quickly or marry in haste. Looking forward to see where you went on your getaway.
Hubby and I will be celebrating 47 years in October. I love him more than the day we married and happily he feels the same. Blessings, Becky

Congrats on your milestone. That's a big one for sure.

It made me stop and count and I was shocked to realized that Louie and I will celebrate 29 years in October. How is that possible?? xo

Congratulations!

We are the only people we know who were married the same year as us - 1971 - who are still married. And now that we are in the 40 year range, sadly, we are seeing friends divorce. We don't get it!

Yes, marriage is work but it is so worth it.

I pray that you have another 25 years together.

Happy Anniversary! We're celebrating our 25th this year too! In fact, we're going camping to celebrate! :-D Sounds like we both got lucky and found two of the few good ones! :-D P.S. I live in SoCal....I'd be curious to hear where you went. :-)

Congratulations! We are working on 34. Never easy but worth looking forward to!

Congratulations! It's a great milestone but I don't think it's as exclusive as many are led to believe. I recently read an article about the statistics behind divorce...& really I know so many people who've been married 25 yrs & longer. The vast majority of my friends are in their 1st marriage that has lasted decades.

Marriage takes work though & celebrating is an important part of that. Way to go!

Best wishes to you and your fellow. You are blessed as there is so many messed up marriages and homes.

You are indeed a very lucky lady. I can't think of anything better than having a guy that truly "gets you". Congrats on 25 years. What a great photo of the two of you!

Anna D said...

Congratulations to you both! I am starting to see more and more couples with longer marriages. Maybe we are all so tired of hearing the negative statistics on marriages and we are more willing to actually Work pat our relationships. Nothing comes easy, but many things (like our marriages) are worth the effort.

We just celebrated our 11th, and we plan on celebrating many more.

Congrats to you guys! Y'all are one of the cutest couples ever :) Even though we are empty nesters now, I would love a getaway too! We used to travel to SoCal all the time when Maurie had clients out there and I still miss it so much. Glad you had fun and I would love to see the photos of your hotel! xo, Andrea
