Congratulations.

Gotcha by 5, and we still like each other.  On the plus side, she's OK with my woodworking hobby.  On the down side, she refuses to sand and finish my woodworking projects.  No Stepford wives here :).

Congratulations Tom.
Being "ex's" keeps you young. We became X's 52 years ago this April. I am only 39 and she is 38. She goes to swim exercises and I go to rehab exercises. I figure if those exercises don't finish us off, we will still be loving our "X's" another 52 years from now.

At our home we’re up to 43 years but not all of them were legal.

Met when she was 14 and I was 15.  We are now 56 and have been married for 34 years. In that time she has accidentally poisoned me, given me a first degree burn when she left her curling tongs on the couch, knocked me off my motorcycle when she was driving in a car,  electrocuted me by walking into a room and telling me I shouldn't be working on electrical things in the dark - and then switched the electric on to the light fitting I had in my hands.  Made me a cinnamon cake that required half a cup of cinnamon. However, she didn't have any cinnamon - just Hungarian paprika a potent chilli   [eek]
