On top of the White Tower in Thessaloniki, Greece
Having had two sets of grandparents who were married for more than 50 years, 19 years seems like a short time. But this week I heard of yet another friend whose marriage is ending. That is five friends in less than a year. Now, I have no problem with people getting divorced. Really, I don't. But it does make these 19 years seem like more of an achievement.
My parents share our anniversary. (They, too, got married and left for grad school the next week.) This year is 47 for them. That is amazing.
