He loved her
for almost
she was

& she decided
that was enough
to let him stay
for a very long time

Today, we have been married for 13 years. My parents' marriage broke up in its 12th year. My father's second marriage broke up in its 12th year. My brother's marriage broke up in its 12th year. I'm not saying we're special somehow, or better in any way. I'm just saying that 13 is now a very special and significant number to me.

I have never really been afraid of the number 13, but today I am truly in love with it.

It's a funny thing how we have those personal landmarks, which have so much meaning.

Every year that I stay married, I think about what an amazing thisng a long marriage is. Practically an organism in its own right. Congratulations!

As one born on the 13th, a Friday no less, I agree it's a lovable number. Happy anniversary.

Thanks everyone.

I should point out that my father, however, has been with his current partner for 16 years. Why get married when you've got a good thing goin'!?

Happy Anniversary to two of the greatest people I know. You're both an inspiration, especially to those of us in our 11th year of marriage ;-)
