Something tells me that from what you've shared about your wife, that's not the most important thing, so long as you two are together-but hey, if you want to work at that and do more of those kinds of things with her...great .

Would your marriage be as strong, independant of religion? Do you feel that religion should be an integral part of anyone's relationships? Or that those relationships that dont have it (religion), lack something pivotal in keeping it stong?

congrats too

I am wondering if that is a record for the Blue Crack community...

Congrats from one Old Man to another.

Tks for your answers, very nice I see this elderly couple in church always holding hands and I can tell it's genuine. Somehow it doesn't seem "real" or possible to me, but honestly it brings a tear to my eye

How do you divide the household chores-is it even or does one person do more than the other?

Congratulations!!!

My husband and I will celebrate our 15 year anniversary in May. Your wife sounds a lot like me with the cats. We started off with 4 cats when we first got married and now out of the original 4 we have one that is still alive and running around. He will be 15 years old in July. Now 5 cats, 2 dogs and 2 kids later, we are still together, even though my husband is not a U2 fan.


I hope you two have a great anniversary and here's to many more years together!!!!

Yes. Very well.

There are two important considerations regarding inlaws. First, to a certain degree, you marry a family - not an individual. Second, both spouses must realize and live as their families are subordinate to their spouse (Scripture says we cleave from our families and become one flesh with our spouse).

Obviously, problems arise when family loyalties take precedence over spouse loyalty.

That is really hard to answer. I think the personal aspect of our faith has played an integral role in our relationship. We both take it seriously and by both focusing on one thing (Jesus Christ) we are drawn together.

I wouldn't say people need a religion to have a strong relationship.

If faith plays an integral part of an individual's life, however, a relationship with someone of a different faith or no faith may have a negative impact on the strength of the relationship.

This has evolved over time. When we owned a home, I took care of the outside, she took care of the inside.

Now, we have no clear cut division of labor so to speak.

Currently, my wife stays home with the kids (though her teaching is like a part time job taking about 20 hours a week). So, she takes on the lion share of household chores simply because she is at home more than I am.

However, I tend to do most of the vacuuming and most of the "fix it" type matters. If sheets are changed on the weekend, I most likely will do it.

Bottom line - I think we both take responsibility for the level of cleanliness in which we want to live (and we lean toward the neat freak side).

Yes, I'm the window (& mirrors) guy.

At 6'4", I can reach to the top without a step stool.

I like that. That's a good point.
