Ours is one of those “love at first sight” stories. We met when I was a freshman at the U of Washington, in fall of 1967, and married in September, 1969. This photo was taken in February, 1970.
Forty-nine years after we met we remain best friends and he is still my one love.
Beautiful pictures and a wonderful story! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Your bond is awesome and you (two as one) are more than super lucky!
(You both look fantastic in both pictures!) 🙂
one X one ee cummings – we had it read at our wedding!
beautiful. I hope me and my husband are happy in 40 years as you seem to be. 🙂
There is no easy road to happiness. It is how we walk it together, caring for ourselves and each other. I truly believe the key is communication. Whenever our ability to work things out on our own failed, we would get counseling help.
Your story is inspiring! Touched to the core of my heart… Very lovely photographs indeed!- Both of them 🙂 Congratulations for finding the best in each other.
I’m pleased our story touches you, Sanjeev. Anne McCarthy expressed it well in the introduction to this challenge:
“…the universe is constantly whispering words of love: expressions of pure joy, respect, loyalty, and sacrifice for someone other than ourselves, and instructions on letting go and focusing on what is most important in this world.” It’s learning to let go of hurts, talking through troubles and finding solutions that keeps us going.
I agree to that. And having someone amazing, while one passes through the troubles of life is reassuring.. that things will be good again.
You never looked more beautiful or happy than with him, when you write about him. You’re such a cute couple!! (Ewwe, I sound 16…but it’s true!) it’s a rarity these days to see two loves that last TOGETHER as one for that long. Well done.💜
You sound sweet! It is rare, a value impressed upon me by my parents who were married over fifty years, as well as that of my maternal grandparents, also married over fifty years. It’s not an easy road, but well worth the effort to hang on through white water times, and make it together.
