The average marriage lasts 24 years. The odds of reaching 50 years of marriage are 42%. Today, February 17, 2010, my parents have beat the odds and the average marriage life span. Because they fell in love and got married there have been 7 more marriages and 19 births. There have been countless days of laughter and countless days of tears. There has been life and death. There have been surprises and routines. There have been hugs and kisses and fights and yelling. There has been plenty of money and there has been near destitution. There have been big houses full of children and there have been small houses with just two people. Out of all 18,262 days these two people have loved each other, no matter what. They have never given up on each other...and they never will. No matter how you count the time that has passed it is a significant amount...and to spend it with someone you love...there is no better way.
