    The Golden Anniversary-a gift to the next generation!

    On May 18th, 1963 my parents were married in St. Bonifacious, MN.  They were high school sweethearts who married just after they turned 20.  Now, 50 years later we are celebrating their golden anniversary.  Congratulations, Mom (Mutz) & Dad (Bobby)!

    In the day and age when divorce is all too common, many people think that being married for 50 years is quite a feat.  However, when my parents said “I do” they meant it.   They knew they were going to be together unless one of them passed away or one of them made a HORRIBLE (adultery, criminal act) choice.  End of story.

    Does that mean they haven’t had struggles?  No way.  They have faced addiction, depression, cancer,  economic struggles, etc…. Luckily, none of kids ever gave them much trouble.  (wink, wink).

    Did they grow apart at times?  Yep.  But, they persevered and grew back together.   Did they wonder how they could live another day married to a person they were so angry at?  Yep.  But, they persevered with forgiveness and acceptance.

    Why were they able to make it while others threw in the towel?

    • They were faithful and loyal to each other. (Even though my dad was a milkman–remember those jokes!)
    • They have a sense of humor.
    • They had great role models.  (Both sets of grandparents made it over 50 too!)
    • They relied on God to get them through some very tough days, not themselves.
    • They love each other despite their annoying habits and disagreements.

    Thanks for showing each of your kids and grandkids what it really means when you say “I do”.  Thanks for thinking of us more than yourselves when things were rocky.  I wish more couples today would realize the gift they give their children when they continue to work hard and stay married.  We are blessed.

     

    What are your kids learning about marriage from you?  What did you learn about marriage from your parents?
