Mr and Mrs Cymaz are still smiling after 30 years of happy marriage. Couldn't have done it without her. We renewed our vows this weekend

Smiling, maybe, perhaps the odd grin. 47 yrs next month. Keep going Cymax, you'll get there.

I have a helping hand, it's called golf! J loves it, always out playing, in fact she's off to Gullane tomorrow for a week. Then I'm out flying, tucked away building, watching rugby, or out for a pint. So you see it's easy, see each other once a week, or so, have a catch up, carry on as before. Easy really.
Oh it also helps that I try to arrange for my parcel to be delivered when J's out. I reckon that saves a lot of explaining!

Not boasting at 30 years of marriage ( we are amateurs among present company). Just celebrating our life and my utter gratitude of what she has done for me.
It was a well kept secret and Mrs C didn't know a thing until my daughter collected her to get changed from the guest house where we were staying. My daughter had a change of clothes in her car. Mrs C thought she was going off to Dunelm!

Not got round to trying this marriage thing yet. Still, I'm only in my 60's so there's time yet.
I might just get married one day. Perhaps even two days if it's ok...........

Congratulations Cymaz on renewing your vows. One of these days my wife and I might get round to it but after 57 and a half years I don't really feel the need. In any case, at my age the Grim Reaper might claim me first and there are too many models I want to build.

We celebrated 50 married years last March and she's still my best friend even after passengering us in sidecar trials, crewing in dinghy races and stoking the tandem! Despite being the family's CFO she never turns a hair at my hobby spending just as I never criticize hers - fortunately she's more interested in cycle shoes than high heels

In our case it is 46 years of marriage, having known each other 55 years. Do i have any regrets about our marriage, no. Were they always easy defiantly not, we struggled on hardly any money during our studies. Then lived through the collapse of both the engineering industry and high street banking. Have two children who have provided the glue, the pleasure and many anxious times as they struggle.
I guess like many, I have some regrets, having not pursued a suggestion that i should apply to take a History Degree at Manchester University, some 15 years ago. Yet on reflection, would I really wanted to isolate myself form my family, to pursue such a singular, self indulgent, endeavour.
The one thing that being old tells you tomorrow will be different, yet have an uncanny look of yesterday. On that basis I have never suggested a career to my kids, as todays well rewarded and plentiful forms of employment, may not be there tomorrow.
As for marriage today, seems more of a business agreement, from societies point of view, not special, anyone can have one. Makes financial arrangements in the future easier to manage. In the past most were emotional, very much about mutual bonds.
