    Congratulations! It's nice to hear good news these days.

    I only know one couple who were grade school sweethearts. They're getting close their 50th, so, it worked out for them. My wife and I are heading to #43 this September---so far, so good.

    Best advice I can give you----
    1. Never go to bed angry.
    2. It's not you vs. her---It's you and her vs. the world.
    3. Everyone's got some weirdness about them. Celebrate it!

    That's better than my experience of being drunk and got married with someone you didn't know in the same night.

    ........as Phyllis Dillar also once said about her husband Fang, "Never go to bed angry. Instead stay up all night and fight".(sorry, I couldn't help it but it worked for me for the last 53 years.)
    Congratulations Calvin and Jessica. All the very best.
    ps It looks like you, as did I, married a small girl. I'm 6'2" and she's 5'1". Needless to say we didn't always see eye to eye(what's got into me today?), but we've obviously survived.

    I am so happy for you both! It's such a wonderful feeling to have a partner in the big scary world.

    When I first met my wife, we talked about marriage, and as I come from divorced parents and neither of parents had stable relationships (my dad is a serial spouse, I think he's on #6) I was kinda against marriage.

    Then my appendix exploded, without anyone knowing, and I was seriously I'll for weeks and then hospitalized. Amy was with me every step, every second, not jus putting up with my illness but my crankiness. I asked if we could marry in the most unromantic and heartfelt way. I always say I'm more sentimental than romantic.

    Every day I am thankful for this wonderful woman who gets me, and still sticks with me (I do return the favor).

    Hope you two have many wonderful years together!!!

    Congrats to you & your beautiful wife. I married my childhood crush 43 years ago and she's still my best friend. I love her and feel very lucky and blessed.
