    This is a shot I just retouched from a 59 year old photo . My parents were married for 57 years until my Dad passed away the morning after their anniversary . My mother is still married to my Dad , there isn't anyone else for her . I thought this photo could be an inspiration to all of you married ones , I know their love has inspired me .

    What a handsome couple. I love your mother's hat; quite stylish.
    My grandparents were married 51 years before Grandpa died. I tho't that was remarkable. And recently I met a woman who'd been married for 54 years. She, and also a friend of hers who'd been married for about 50 years say the same thing. There is no other man that will ever replace their husband. Now that's love!

    You know, that's a long time to look at the same face every day at the breakfast table.
