Thoughts on Marriage
I married the first time at 21.
Divorced at 24.
At 21, I’d married the wrong man.
Grateful for having lived on my own, got the gumption to leave.
Not my last mistake.
Sadly, though not without fond memories of my single exploits.
Live and learn.
At 35, quite by accident or by fate, kissed by Spence.
Knew through friends.
Older than me.
Funny, complicated, worth it.
At 53, married Spence.
Not rushing into things
Scared, until I wasn’t.
Marriage – not so scary, feel protective and nurturing.
At 58, retired.
Happy, cozy, can’t believe this is my life.
Marriage is worth all efforts; each day is an adventure with Spence.
Somedays more than others.
