I am in my second marriage, if I knew how happy you can be with the right man, I do not think my first would have lasted 18yrs. The only thing is we are both getting old, but still enjoying life. We have been married for 15 years and we hope to make our silver wedding.

Congratulations Bob, to you and your wife! Choose Wisely is the Gold Standard of choosing partners! Thanks for sharing! My wife and I are celebrating our Golden Wedding Anniversary, this year, 2020! We’ve had 50 great years of wedded bliss, thanks to choosing wisely, back when we were first dating each other. We are both musicians, and we are both somewhat eccentric. Had we not chosen each other, where we respect each other’s freedom to pursue their musical and artistic interests, we would probably never of had the fulfilling marriage, that we have today, and have had for 50 years! Marriage is a partnership, that can grow, as the years go by, to be the wondrous, happy, exciting, experience that it should be! There is a lot of give and take, in a long lasting marriage, with unbridled, loyal, love, as the glue, so to speak, that binds the partnership together, through all the ups and downs, that come along with being married!

Congratulations.

I would have made 56 yrs now if first one had worked out. But 41 yrs 2nd time round and chose more carefully being more mature. 2 lovely sons from 1st, lived in Brazil and Spain, so no regrets at all!!

Great advice. 👍😊

Thanks.

How does this make innocent dumped partners feel? People do choose wisely but then the 'good' partner let's them down. Life is difficult enough without these sayings. I might make 50 years marriage next year and it will reflect the fact that my mother, and all us kids, were dumped by my father. We all do our best but life often deals some poor cards.

The saying itself may be true but we cannot always trust that that prince charming will stay that way.

So very sorry to hear that fate brought you a different story to tell, that doesn’t seem good! Just for the record, being married 50 years takes a lot of work! Sorry you were dealt a cruel blow, like that!

Congratulations to you both Bob. I love those words you chose to use too. They are also very true. I, like you was lucky to have a partner who fitted those words but lost him to cancer some years ago. You obviously appreciate your chosen partner and I wish you nothing but another 40 years of happiness.

Cheers.xxx 💕💕💕

Thanks.

Thank you for that Bob. I certainly did.

Great.

True words. Thank you for sharing. Unfortunately my other half , decided to break “the golden rule” After 17 years of marriage. So sometimes even if you choose wisely, Life Happens!!!

Thanks for sharing. I am sorry.

38 years here

Great. Congratulations.

Hi Bob, my Wife and I just celebrated 54 years and you are so right! A wonderful statement indeed. All good wishes to you and yours.

That's so true

You can choose wisely on the day ,But I lost my wife to psp brain disease,but you can only control some of it , today would have been our 48 wedding anniversary .I looked after her for 5 year's 24/7 for better or worse I took care of her to the end ,I know through happy and sad times

I did choose wisely ,take care . Peter

That is great advice and so right you are.

I was partnered with my other half for 25yrs but she sadly passed away 18 months ago, aged 58 from ovarian cancer. We were everything together; there’s not a day goes by when she is on my mind. I know she’s pain free now wherever she rests in the heavens, but slowly, I am accepting she’s is no longer around physically but still remains painful when something triggers an emotional response.
