    Congrats on finding a good one! Not what I was expecting to read when I opened this thread. I’m really blessed as well. it’ll be 30 years for us this September. She puts up a fuss sometimes but almost always sees things my way. It really is rare these days.

    Congrats to you all; I'm hitting 29 this year, and she hates all of my hobbies and I really have no use for hers, but we tolerate each other's because we understand the therapeutic benefits that hobbies provide. I have to admit my marriage is at a crossroads; there are some things that need working out.

    Hope you work things out!
    I know what yah mean about tolerating each other, and each others hobbies are therapeutic.
    I think about that a lot too, "If shes happy doing her thing, and Im happy doing my thing, and we enjoy each others company, some disagreements yes, but overall what more is there, I don't want her following me around like a lost puppy"

    Congrats to you both. Any couple who can make it together that long & still kinda like each other is an exception & should be celebrated.
    Jane & I celebrated 35 years on the 25th. Go figure............still high school buddies.

    Can you love your spouse but not be in love? Kind of a room mate sort of thing...
