Most of the people in the younger generations have no idea what that word means and many even think it is a silly idea.
You should see the looks I get when I tell them I have been married for 32 years and have only been with my wife. Some of them have actually called me a liar and that I must have had an affair at least once during that time. They refuse to believe me when I tell them I have never and will never cheat on my wife.
There is a serious lack of values in much of the younger generations.
On her anniversary, Mom mentioned it to a girl (in her 20s) that she worked with.
The girl's response? "You've been married for 40 YEARS?! To the SAME person????!"
:-) Mom and Dad are sneaking up on 50 years, now. Wonder what her co-worker would think about that.
