my parents celebrated their 42nd wedding anniversary this week. lately when i see them together i am struck by what a team they are. they love each other, sure, but more than that, they’re just always in each other’s corner. they also allow a certain amount of ridiculousness from the other. once, basically out the of the blue, my dad said “you know, if you die before me, i don’t think i’ll get married again, but i think i’ll date.” my mom just laughed and said “i love you.” they’re great.
