I’ve been married 49.5 years. We had no wedding, we signed a book. We said no vows and had no stated contract or expectations.

After a few years we agreed that we did not have to be friends with each other’s friend’s spouses. Years later she told me, I don’t want you screwing around on me but if you just have to, don’t do it with one of my friends. I don’t want them talking about me. They were the ones hitting on me. Maybe she knew.

Not a lot of conditions. Is that unconditional love? I think that’s what we have.

Retired and living my golden years in a world full of angry people.
