So Audrey, what kind of quilt are you making for the big sixty? We'll hit 35 soon, so I guess I should start planning a 60 anniversary quilt now, so I'll have it done in time? Wishing you and DH all the best, PAT in VA. USA

let me see, we met in cyberspace in mid 94, for real in nov. 94, moved in together a couple of months later, but then I came to grad school in aug. 95, and he stayed back home until dec. 95. still, we lived 3 hours apart. we got married on jan. of 97 but didn't move in together until the summer of 99 I think... been together since. so how much is that??? no idea when to start counting.. :o)

In today's society of "quickie divorces", I think anybody that makes it beyond 3 years or thereabouts is doing good. As for where to start counting, pick one :-) Ken and I met online in fall 1996, IRL in December 1996, engaged in April 1997, and married in August 1997......

I hope you have something special planned. My folks 50th was a large family party and it was a really wonderful day. Wow to 49+ years! Taria

Your story always amazes me, Marissa! I suppose you could start counting either from when you decided that yes, this was leading to marriage, or from the date of marriage itself. Or just put all those dates in a hat and pick one. :-)
