There was another song later ‘Take a Letter Maria send it to my wife, say I won’t be coming home, gonna start a new life.’
I feel sorry for folk who are locked in an unhappy marriage, relationship or just life. I have known a couple ‘mid life crisis’ situations that actually split families and within a month or so both were unhappy but could not bear to apologize and try to repair the damage. They remained miserable.
No union is perfect. And there are some marriages that definitely weren’t made in heaven. No person should live a life abused. I understand that. There are some marriages that should have never been. Those aside…….
Most marriages could be fixed, with a lot of work and perseverance. I remember someone saying in a book, “The one who says ‘I’m sorry first’, (right or wrong) is the one who loves the most.
Compare marriage to a job. One you really like, but you get upset and want to quit. WHEN all you need is a vacation.
Marriage is a team effort. Even in a team you have the stronger personality who must know and recognize this, and not use it to LORD over the other. Funny thing, in “Our Perfect Marriage”, she is the stronger in some things, and I am stronger in others. Even at that, she has always been the giver, and looking back I appreciate that. Today I am still trying to make up for some of my stupidity.
Tomorrow will mark the 58th year of our marriage. I married the most beautiful girl in the world, and She still is. I meant it, when I said, “Yes Sir”, to Judge Nunn when he asked in a few words if I was ready for this to last “Until Death do us Part”.
She has been a rock, she is just as cool now, as when she had the pony tail and was such a danged
When you read this Sherry, I love you more than ever Sweetheart.
PS: To all the young married folk who were so in love when they married. ALWAYS REMEMBER why you married the most important person in the world, and TRY to always appreciate that. A marriage can last forever.
I do not remember what this is. someone told me but I forgot…
