17 years+

The man and I didn't have a fancy wedding; neither of us really wanted one. So instead of shelling out thousands of dollars we didn't have, we hired a preacher from the phone book to come to our apartment and marry us. We plotted this about a week ahead of time, bought some wedding bands, got a marriage license and then gave our immediate families three days' notice. It was a short and sweet ceremony and only cost $60. Saturday will be our 17th anniversary. I think we got our money's worth ;)

We've actually been together a lot longer than that, though. I met the man in 1985 and we've been a couple since early '87. So it'll be 23 years together in March. It amazes me when I think about that... Twenty-three years. We're very different, the man and I, but our personalities gel somehow. We have minor spats once in a while, but we never argue. I think what makes us work is that we truly bring out the best in each other. And we love each other.
