We had the honor of going to dinner with them to celebrate their 48 years together.
That is a long time.
The best part is that they still like each other!

I leaned forward and eagerly awaited some wise words of wisdom...
"Well, you know...it has not actually been that great...."

Like everyone, they had their challenges.
