I got married when I was 21 years, 3 months, and 4 days old.
As of today, I have been married for 21 years, 3 months, and 20 days.
That means I’ve been married for over half of my life! Earlier this year, I recognized that September would represent a milestone — but I never wrote it down in my calendar or anything like that. So the actual half-way day passed without fanfare a couple of weeks ago.
Still, that somehow seems appropriate. Marriage has a lot more to do with routine and consistency than special milestones. Marci and I love each other and support each other in ways that are subtle and sustainable. And I just look forward to the percentage of my life in which I’ve been married continue to grow and grow and grow.
