Has it always been perfect, hell no. When we were first married we were making minimum wage ($2.80 per hour). Pamela's father had to co-sign for everything. We were poor, living in a three-room apartment with a bed being the only piece of furniture for quite some time. We lived pay check to pay check for years. We struggled, we argued, but we persevered. We made it work. Unlike today, where couples divorce after the slightest challenge to their marriage. A few weeks ago, we were out with six couples and the years of marriage ranged from a low of 30 to a high of 39. Pretty cool, but unfortunately a dying breed.
Anyway, my marriage continues to be a great ride, a wonderful wife and two fabulous daughters. Pamela, thank you for 35 years that I wouldn't trade for anything.
