Till Death Do Us Part

old couple As I was driving home today after teaching, I couldn’t help but notice the sweet older couple in the car next to me. They were talking away pleasantly, and she had the cutest red hat on. In a world where the divorce rate continues to go up, it’s not as common a sight as one would hope.

From my view, it’s hard to imagine leaving a person you fall in love with. I can’t understand losing that affection for them and forgetting why you married them in the first place. But, my view is inexperienced.

So, what does it take to stay with the person you fell in love with when you were young? To stay true to the vow ’till death do us part’? To still be in love even after 50+ years of marriage?
