We got married in 1987. He was a young Lieutenant then. Twenty seven years later (and a few pounds heavier) here we are. How does one stay together that long?
I have no answer really. Only that love must have played a part. That and a lot of hard work.
Love is patient and kind.
Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude.
It does not demand its own way.
It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.
It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.
Love never gives up,
never loses faith,
is always hopeful,
and endures through every circumstance
love will last forever
1 Corinthians 13:4–8a
