Today, my parents mark their 53rd wedding anniversary. It’s a completely different world now from when they got married. In this day, when some people treat marriage like shoes – they change them at will – it’s nice to know there are others who take it seriously. My folks have had their usual mix of good and bad times, as in any relationship. But ultimately, they never gave up on one another. They’re both almost 80 now, and I don’t know how much longer I’ll have them, so this simple gesture is for them.
