On May 6 of this year Dom and I celebrated 43 years of marriage with no time off for bad behavior.

Like most long term relationships, our marriage has grown like an epic novel with many chapters that have chronicled happiness and heartbreak. Somehow, at the conclusion of every chapter, we have always been able to come together and stay together.  And, gentle reader, I don’t know how we have done it.  So, don’t ask for the secret of how we arrived at this huge number of years still together.

Sometimes Dom will ask why I married him.  This usually occurs when I am finding fault with something.  And the answer is, besides his many, many, wonderful characteristics, he makes me laugh.

Here is an example of that:

Well, maybe I do have a piece of advise.  Marry a man who makes you laugh so hard that you are afraid that you will….( I will let you fill in the blank).

Wishing you the joy of a relationship with a partner who tickles your funny bone.


About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. Congratulations to you and Dom on 43 years . Hope you have many, many more. Life is full of ups and downs, twists and turns. No one can see the future. Having someone you can share it with makes the journey much more fun and exciting. Having someone who can make you laugh makes difficult times lighter.


  2. Wow! Congratulations to you and Dom. And I agree with the value of laughter. It’s hugely helpful in getting through the rough parts of life. My husband and I have been together 31 years, and laughter has played a big role.


  3. You do have the key to being together, laughter is the best medicine. Congratulations to you and Dom! That is the kind of card my husband would buy. Soon we will celebrate 38 years together, so we are not far behind you. 🙂
