22 years

Ms. P and I have been married. I’m still amazed it actually happened. Just when I thought there was no hope, “come in, she said, I’ll give ya shelter from the storm.”

I'm glad that things have worked out so well for you, after hope seemed to be gone. Congratulations!

I've owned my Fiat for 30 years. It's still pretty.

In a few months will be our 26th anniversary. The full saga of our relationship, marriage decision and the sacrifices involved won't fit in this post, but during these almost-26 years I've never had one day—no, not even a single minute—of regret.

Congratulations! It is quite an accomplishment. Here's to at least 22 more!

Suburban Plankton and I celebrated 25 back in May. I don't feel old enough to have been married that long.

1996 was pretty good, wasn't it?
We celebrated our 22nd June 15. Both sets of parents recently celebrated their Golden Anniversaries, and my dad's parents were together 61 years before Grandpa passed, so we have good role models.

My parents have been married 65 years, and my wife's parents for 55. I was 31 when we were married, so it may be tough for us to make it to 65.

Nineteen years, living semi-separated. Could have ended altogether on the second or fifth year.

Congrats! January was our 25th... and so far we will be "Until death do us part". We get along most of the time and the few fights we have keep us spicy.

Congrats, you crazy newlyweds!

We hit 35 this summer, which I think beats anyone on the thread so far (except P-man's parents).

Ha! Beat you by one. (36 last May 22).

Congrats to all the old married folks, especially Mr. and Mrs. P. My mother says the first thirty years are the hardest.

Regards,
Shodan
