George and I were married thirty years ago today (Flag Day!). We were young and innocent and stupid, but we were also stubborn and happy and in love.
It's still working.
George is not a frou-frou kind of guy (despite the pink tie), so his anniversary card is simple and to the point (pun intended).
The distressed arrow comes from Hero Arts Borders and Arrows set, and the sentiment is a very old wood-mounted Hero Arts stamp. The heart is actually a sticker...sort of squishy but pretty flat. You can see it better in the close-up.
We got all dressed up and had a lovely dinner this evening. Thirty years is an accomplishment, the kind of thing done by stubborn people who won't give up. I read an article recently that said couples who stay together are polite and kind to each other. Yes. That's true, certainly in our experience. But no matter how polite and kind two people are, it takes stubbornness, too.
Other than Jesus (for Christians), good manners, and stubbornness, what do you think it takes to make a marriage last?
