12 Years


The last twelve years of marriage have been a wild ride. I’m having a lot of fun with you. Even on the occasions when times were not so much fun, I’m glad you were there with me. I love you so much more now than I did when we got married (even though it was a lot back then), and I’m looking forward to growing old with you. Thank you for coming with me on all of my crazy adventures! You make the best company of anybody I know. It’s wonderful to live with someone that gets my jokes and knows my quirks. You ought to know that I’m your biggest fan. I love your kind heart and your quick wit. I love that you envision structure and design the way I do. I like it when we are of one mind on a subject, and I’m thrilled when we differ on issues. On top of all that, you’re beautiful and sexy! I love that you want to hang around with me. I’m looking forward to whatever we’ve got in our future together. When the zombies attack, I want you and your shotgun at my back. Any swanky parties I’m invited to, I want you to be my date. That’s an open invitation on either of those scenarios, or any conceivable thing in between. So in less than a week, we will have been married for twelve years. Would you care to join me for the next twelve? I love you so incredibly much!

  1. What Mike wrote was pretty exceptional, heartfelt, and very well expressed.

    The only words that I would be able to add are those that came to me in the shower this morning. From a 1977 Englebert Humperdink (seriously) song, the key line being “After the lovin, I’m still in love with you.”

  2. Michael, as your spanish namesake and about to hit the big 25 with SWMBO, I am warning you: WIVES ARE VAMPIRES!
    You get old and ugly. She will still look great as the day you two got married. She can read your mind. She will hypnotize you into things you swore you’d never do. You will find yorself repeating “Yes master” (or the politically correct version “Yes Dear”) over and over. And the most insidious of it all, she has you convinced you are in charge.


    PS: Wife told me to tell you that it is called UNDIVIDED LOVE and to apologize for my remarks. 😉
