Thank You Chester and Esther for your wonderful example.
Charley Pride sang. "You've got to, Kiss an angle good morning and let
her know your thinking about her when your gone". I've been doing that
for 35 years, It worked for me. So far so good.
They need to find more stories like this one! It just makes you feel good. You
couldn't ask for much better. I am gay. It has been hard lately with people
getting so upset about same sex marriage. We are not attacking wonderful
marriages like this one, we want to share our lives with somebody as much as
anybody. I tried it with a woman. It didn't work and I know it won't.
I have been with my partner for 15 years! I love him more every year and our
lives together has been good! We have been happy! We wern't among those who
got married in December. I felt so disapointed! I grew up Mormon. I understand
how they believe, but it is very painful. I read wonderful stories like this and
I miss being able to talk to members and share my life.Our families have
supported us. I think many people misunderstand us! They judge us. We can't
have everything. You are both a great example. God bless you.
Now that is marriage as it should be, a male and female walking through life
together, holding fast to sacred covenants and promises made to each other.
These are my wife's grandparents and I never had grandparents to speak of
really. These two are the best ever. You can't help but sit at their side
and know you are apart of something really special. Love these two so
much!!!!!! Happy Valentines Day!
@bandersen"Why do I have this sneaking suspicion that I won't
find the same joy on a gay marriage after 77 years?"Honestly,
I'm not sure why you'd spend any time at all speculating on the level
of joy in a long-lasting gay marriage.Obviously, a "bigoted or
cynical view on marriage" is not to blame for such a mean-spirited post, but
a bigoted or cynical view on gay people could be. Or it could simply be lack of
experience.Last week, I had dinner with six couples (gay) whose
relationships ranged from 15 to 60 years. They might be mildly curious to know
why you are so invested in rooting for their demise, and baffled as to why you
think it would be inevitable.Seeing and knowing these couples, it is
easy to relate to the joy we all feel when we find the one our heart loves and
build a life-long conversation together filled with love and understanding.
Yes that is what marriage and love should .... faithful, committed and in love
from the first day to the last ... all of this mutual .... and a concern about
making it work, about one another welfare, a dedication and dialoguing things
out ... and taking deep breath when things get a littel heated .. so that they
can be discussed later when things have cooled off.
Talk about having a fixed smile on your face after seeing their picture and
reading about their life. Wow...we all could experience that great joy. Bless
Let's not turn this beautiful love story into pro-gay or gay bashing.
Let's leave this as their beautiful love story. CONGRATULATIONS AND HAPPY
Another 35 years and that will be our story!
