Sixty Years of Togetherness

Posted on September 18, 2013 at 11:25 AM
My grandparents recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. They had a blast re-living so many memories they had shared together. As I looked over our large group of family members that included their four sons and their spouses, three goddaughters, twenty grandchildren, and nineteen great- grandchildren, I couldn’t help but realize that this is what living and marriage is all about. It’s not about how much you spend on a wedding, or if the guests will enjoy the calamari versus blackened salmon more, or if you honeymooned on an exotic island. It’s about creating that special bond with your spouse that no one or thing can break. It’s about creating a memorable journey together that will have its ups and downs, but one that you can face as a team. It’s about instilling your values into your children, and making sure that your grandchildren are taught the same. It’s about letting them know about your struggle, and the obstacles you’ve overcome together. Children should not have a rosy outlook on marriage, but they should not think of it as torture either; their view of marriage should be a realistic one.

So today, I honor my grandparents who raised four incredible sons and impacted the lives of their grandchildren.  The difficulties they faced, drove them together, instead of apart, it made them dig their heels in a little bit deeper and hold onto each other a little tighter when all hell was breaking loose around them. I guess I’m saying all of this to simply remind myself and you to not “sweat the small stuff” and to keep in mind that your actions and words will continue to impact your relationship even after the big day is over and the guests have gone home. Remember to choose your battles and your words wisely. So have fun planning a fabulous wedding, but don’t let it overpower the energy that you put into building a lasting marriage and legacy.

Yeah! I concur all that you've said. It was an extremely inspirational blog that I've read today which the story has been the same of my grandparents. I'm actually gleeful that after all the problems or the struggle that has come over to them they are still together they are living in together until now they are still making a loving memory, that is what real love is. No one can break it apart when you're truly in love with each other. Keep sharing the inspirational blog!

As I know nowadays, it's only rarely to have a long-lasting relationship as what you have. It is really amazing if there are someones who love you until the end of time and 'til the last breath of her/his life. We are so blessed if there is someone who loves us unconditionally. If you find someone who truly loves you then pay them back, make him happy and let them know how much you care. I hope someday there's someone who loves me like yours.

This article portrays how love can do wonderful things, thank you for sharing this story. It is great knowing that your grandparents got through all the challenges that they have faced, with all the ups and downs in this life they stood strong with each other's side. They've been through a lot and they have numerous amount of stories to tell, their experiences could help us learn more and know how to cope with life. Learning that no matter how grand the wedding is, it does not represent that the whole relationship will be as beautiful as it is. It will truly depend on the person that you will be sharing your life with.

I'm a young adult, meaning I'm 22 years old by now. At my age, I have dated a lot of people already. I got engaged into four different serious relationships after all of that datings that I have made. But unfortunately, all of those relationships have already ended. The longest relationship that I have so far lasted for more than a year. That is why I really envy the two of you because you've been together for 68 years. You loved and never gave up onto each other for a very long period of time. I wish that soon, I will find the right girl for me that I want to spend the rest of my life with.
