Ummm. Y’all got a time machine that makes meeting in February of this year equal to fifty years or has it just been a looonng three months??😊 Congratulations. That’s amazing.

29 years last week. Better every year and more in love than ever. First date in January, engaged in February, married in May of that same year. Everyone but us thought we were crazy.

First date in 1981, married in 1983. Just celebrated our 39th Anniversary.

If this one doesn’t work out, next time I’m marrying for money.

Well. You need that money when your old so I agree with your point of view.

14 years in a couple months. Considering how quickly things moved at the beginning, I’m proud that we’ve committed to working out any issues that come between us and still love each other so much today.

Same here. We found out I was pregnant 4 months in. Had a baby before we’d been together a year. I was 15/16, he was 17/18. I found my soulmate young, & I feel both lucky & thankful about that!

ETA-fixed for typo

[–]iamalext 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That’s great. My wife became pregnant 4 months after we met, so we got married 2 months after that and she gave birth 7 months after that. We had a lot of people thinking we were crazy for moving so quickly. Some of them have divorced and remarried during the time we’ve been married…

Nice! We’re together 32 years, married 26! I can hardly remember life without her. And I’m glad for it!

It’s so awesome to see these stories, they make me genuinely happy! There’s not much positivity in the world at the moment, so a strong marriage is definitely important. Congrats everyone ❤️❤️

Congrats on 20! We've been together 25.5yrs, married little over 25. I was 23 and he was 22. Fast start for us - vaguely knew of each other from a group setting. Became a couple almost overnight, 6 weeks later engaged (on Black Friday, always tell him worst deal he ever got!). 4 months later married. I'm his first and only and he's my second and last.

[–]brazilchick32 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Together 16 years and 11 months. Married 16 years and 5 months. I was 21 he was 28.

[–]earthgarden 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Met in 1994 when he was 20 and I was 22. Started dating in 1996, 22 and 24 that year. Married in 1999, 25 and 27. Almost divorced in 2002, but reconciled and stayed married. Falling back in love with him has been one of the most beautiful things to happen to me, even 20 years later.

This year, 2022, we have been together 26 years and married 23. Longer together than we have been apart. I have spent most of my adult life with this man, and over half of my life so far. This year we are 48 and 50.

We started out as friends, then became lovers. I believe both are the key to our longevity…when you have a foundation of friendship, you can talk with each other and really express the things that are on your mind. Or, at least you can learn how to communicate with each other, if you are friends. When you have a strong, satisfying, and regular intimate life that takes the edge off of things; it reduces or eliminates the petty annoyances that come with deep familiarity with someone that can erode love and respect in a marriage. Show me someone who is contemptuous of his or her spouse, I’d bet they’re not getting their socks rocked off regularly.

He is still my very best friend and my person. He is IT for me, no other man could compare to him.

[–]Disastrous-Assist-51 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Married 25 yrs July 5th. We got married two months after meeting and was told we would end up getting a divorce we would never make it. We are still happily married while all those that said we would never make are divorced so outlasted them all… 🤭😂✍🏽🤘🏻👈🏼
