Been off the forum for a bit, but I wanted to say
Thanks for the well wishes! 52 Years and counting. . .
On March 15, my sweetie and I hit 52 years (22 married, 52 years together).
I so appreciate you all

Congratulations!

Umm, together 30 years before marriage? Is there a story there you'd be willing to tell?

It happens. My ex-wife's uncle was engaged for just over 20 years before they set the date.

Sure, we really had no reason at all to get married, we knew we were in it for the long haul. Then, when we were getting ready to retire, we went to a retirement seminar (US Postal Service , very early 2000s) and were told that if we weren't legally married for at least two years at the time of retirement, we wouldn't be eligible for survivor benefits. Well, that changed our minds in a hurry. And we had a lovely wedding in a friends backyard, officiated by a good friend with only close friends in attendance. Did you know that you can have anyone marry you in the state of California? Its called Commissioner for a Day, and made it so much more personal.

Excellent story. I like stories with super-logical reasoning. We have a wealthy friend that had no need to collect Social Security because of massive taxes.... but decided to collect it anyway to not have to write checks to Medicare. Logic.
Congrats on over half a century of blissful togetherness.
Go have a bowl cioppino at Phil's to celebrate.
