Last night, we took them out to celebrate and got to check out the new restaurant at the Waterworks. It was fabulous. At dinner, they sort of did a review of their "marital highlights" good and bad, and, when asked if they could sum up the advice they would give for staying married 35 years, dad said:
- No matter what is happening around you or how annoyed you are, always try to remember the person who you fell in love with when you first met them.
- And, always say I love you before you go to bed
- Keep your sense of compassion and sense of humor and have fun together
- intellectually challenge one another
Congrats guys -- and here's to another 35 more!!!
