What is the elixir that makes for a long-lasting marriage?

I’m often asked that question when friends ask how long my parents have been married. “Amazing,” is their reply when I say how long. “I hope my wife and I can reach that same milestone.

Today, my parents celebrate 62 years of marriage. Of course, we will celebrate the occasion with them. We will toast for many, many more years to follow.

The wishes they had when they married still remain true. Better yet, we have had an early morning rain. And, you know what is said when it rains on your wedding day – it is a good sign of a long-lasting marriage. It should apply for the anniversary also.

Happy anniversary, mom and dad. May you have many, many more years to come.
