I know people who have been married 48 years, and those who have been married longer than that. I read about one couple who have been married for 60 some years. That is more than a life time. 48 is getting closer to 50. A couple I know just celebrated their 58th year. We celebrated with them Wednesday night, and they celebrated more that week. I believe in celebrating, because like a birthday, this celebration should be done one time a year all day from 12AM. to 12 PM.
