Happy 65th Anniversary Mom and Dad!
Mom still has the circlet feathered hat, in a saucy coral pink with olive feathers here and there. The white satin peplum suit didn't survive a year, Mom cut it up for a slip! I think she looked like a movie star; so glamorous, and Dad in his double breasted pin striped suit was pretty Hollywood himself.
I tried to find some reliable information about the percentage of marriages that last 65 years.
The closest I came was a government document that stated in 2001 only 6% of all married people at that time had been married over 50 years. I can't help but wonder if that percentage has grown with all the right after WWII weddings that took place in 1946.
Even with that big bump in the wedding statistics, I suspect you two's anniversary is a still a pretty rare event. I am so blessed that both of you are here to celebrate it and plan to go out for a dinner theater event. Yah!!!
Wish I was there with you to celebrate with you. Shall we start planning for the big 70th in five years? Why not...I think that day will be here before we know it.
Love you both and may God continue to shower your marriage with blessings!
