We've had ups and downs as have most couples, but he is still the love of my life and I know for a fact that were anything to ever happen to separate us, I would not remarry nor would I have another man in my life. For 32 years I can honestly say I've never been the least bit interested romantically in any other man.

I married a keeper as my friends and family say and have said.
Congratulations! You are a very rare and lucky person!

Thank you all for your good wishes. I have indeed been fortunate to have such a special man in my life. Although I appreciate your wishes for another 31 years, I'm not sure I want to spend another 31 years with him though.

Yes Rigel - I told him when it first happened. Naturally he doesn't think he looks at all like Bruce and I think he looks better.

I'm still enjoying Pedro Infanti.

I´m so sure, Pedro Infante sang the "Las mañananitas" to you, that day, on his record my friend!......

Linda! Happy Anniversary! Sorry I missed this thread until now.

To what do you attribute such a long, happy marriage? I mean other than hubby's good looks.

When he's sure he's right and you know he's wrong, just smile and nod.

Seriously, I have a few things I think contribute to a long and happy marriage:

1. Neither of us ever says anything in anger that cannot be taken back, i.e., even if he is really upset or mad about something, he will say, "Honey, I can't talk about it right now, I need to calm down". Neither of us has ever sworn at or called the other one a nasty name in 32 years.

2. Never take each other for granted. I've been cooking for him for 32 years (and I mean cooking since I don't used prepared or processed foods and make everything from scratch), yet it is rare for him to sit down to a meal and not say thank you for making a nice dinner even after all these years. In return I always thank him for fixing things on my car and doing any little errands for me. I always let him know he's appreciated.

3. If you have a difference of opinion and it isn't earth-shatteringly important, agree to disagree. It isn't necessary to be "right" and it's OK to feel differently about something even though you are a couple. Hubby does like to argue until he can get me to agree with him sometimes. I just listen and nod and at the end of his speil I tell him I appreciate that he feels differently than I do about the situation, but as long as nobody gets hurt or dies, it's not worth fighting/arguing about.

Those will at least get you off to a good start.

Great advice!
#3 sounds like something Dr. Phil says. "You want to be right or you want to be happy?"

Does Dr. Phil say that? I've never watched him - well that's not entirely true - I think I tuned in once and hubby and I neither one could stand him. That's one thing we agreed on.

Why not? You mean you don't like pompous, know-it-all type men?
