Marriage and bad hair…

So when you’ve been married since the Ice Age and you’re traveling to a place of high humidity — which your hair reacts to by becoming a squirrel’s tail — and someone says very seriously to you and your husband that they want a nice pic of the two of us…

This is the sort of thing that happens. Yes, we’re a pair of twelve year olds.

But seriously, since the dawn of time. I’m curious, what’s your longest relationship?

  1. A full 43 years as of 2017. 3 Kids. 2 grandkids. Lots of ups and downs. A major down right now. But you and your antics make me smile. And laugh out loud. Thank you for that.

  2. By the way, Jill, has anyone else but me noticed that in those two pics, Alpha Man looks an awful lot like Chip Gaines from Fixer Upper? Quite handsome and worthy of your book covers AND your writing inspiration!

  3. This November will be married 37 years, which is 37 years too long. Embarrassed to say so, especially since all the other commenters have been happily married to their hubbies. The one good thing to come out of my marriage is my son, 29 year old USMC Sergeant. The best thing I ever did and the most wonderful gift God could’ve given me. Children truly are, as the Bible says, treasures from heaven. Wonderful pregnancy, easy childbirth, a happy child who could make me laugh so very easily (and he still does)!

  4. July 8 will mark 46 years for hubby and me, plus another year of dating before that. Most of the time we love each other 🤣.

  5. We will be married 50 years in October just love you and Alpha Man we need YOUR LOVE STORY

  6. The one I’m currently in. My husband and I have been together for almost 9 years, married 8, both in September. And I’m only 26 and he’s 29

  7. My marriage plus courting, 35 years. Many people said it wouldn’t last one year because we are so different from each other.

  8. 35 years here and I’m the straight man in the duo. Your hair is LOVELY! I’d trade for it in a New York minute!!

  9. The one I’m in! Known him since 2000, been married since 2002… 3 Kids later and we’re still going strong. 😀

  10. My hub and I will be together for 45 yrs in July and will be married for 40 yrs in September…one day at a time lol

  11. Oops. My husband and I have been together for 27 years and are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary in June.

  12. I’ve been married to Bill for 42 years. We met in October 1975. Got engaged in April 1976, and married on August 21, 1976.

  13. I’ve been with my husband 40 years, and we’ve been married for 33 of them! I love how you still make each other laugh!!

  14. We had 43 years married before he was called home and five years together before marriage….not long enough….we had snowball and/or water fights 😉

  15. First marriage…19 years and 6 kids.

    Second Marriage…just about 3 weeks shy of 24 years. 16 Grands.
    Still married. Still goof off together. You know when you’ve got THE ONE when he wakes up at 5am, gets up to go pee, comes back to bed, snuggles up, sniffs your hair, and says “This is better than Disneyland.”

  16. I married the man who mended my broken heart and made a little boy happy again (my first husband died when my (now) eldest was 17 months old), we’ve been married 22 years and he still makes my heart flutter when I think about him

  17. 29 years and counting. He retired last year and it’s been “interesting” having him home 24/7 but we’re working it out. JIC, starring a chapter of the Future Widows of Retired Husbands.

  18. We were together for 52 years & married 49 years, 11 months. He died a month before our 50th. Having him suffer the past few years with multiple health issues, it made me appreciate all the great years we had together. Miss him every day but know he is pain free & is in a better place. We’ll meet again when it’s time. Love your life! You are so lucky to have a great one!

  19. Will be married 25 years next month but dated for 3 so 28 years. My hair does the same thing in humidity and it drives me nuts!

  20. I am closing in on another big milestone birthday and still have good relationships with my sisters so those are the longest. Romantically speaking, my marriage lasted 29 years. However, 5 years and a divorce later, the friendship is still strong. We consider ourselves best friends.

  21. Outside of the family I was born into, Is have to say my husband. Married 44 years this coming August. We’re both retired and someone asked me how we get along now that we are retired. I said. “We laugh more”!

  22. The boy and I were friends for a few years before and married over 35 years ago. He, too, is a keeper (most days!) And you two always take great pics! Your hair looked great; didn’t see any squirrel’s tail.

  23. Met my husband the night before my 16th birthday we married and have been together almost 41 yrs

  25. Nothing compared to most of these commenters! We’ve been together for a bit over 11 years, but being young with very little money we waited to get married. We just passed our 4 year marriage anniversary a couple months ago.

  26. Rob and I have been married 43 1/2 years and he still makes me laugh. We are both retired and together 24/7. He is my heart.
