Great message

It's sad that today there is war between sexes and not love.

so much to be thankful for!

our parents have set an amazing example for us, that they didnt look for a way out when things did not always go their way. and they had many challenges too in those years, , they had a outlook that we stay together, and make it work. mazel tov to your parents lori, many more healthy happy years together, and only nachas from their children, and grandchildren. I would like to also thank my mom ( my father passed away a few years ago) for showing her children and grandchildren the wonderful way life should be and passing it along to us kids!

Maybe it was and maybe it wasn't worth it!

I will have been married 66 years in April. We have four grown children and two grand daughters, who are lovely. We raised our children in the sixties and seventies, problem years. If I were a young person today, I might not consider marriage and children as important as I did, but might be more concerned with my development as a success in my chosen field. My parents had a poor relationship and they separated when I and my three siblings were grown. My marriage is average, not bad , not perfect. It comes down to a personal, individual decision. One of our daughters is divorced, one son was but has remarried, one son never married but has a long time girl friend

Beautiful picture at the end of your talk, Lori

I wish you and your folks mazel tov!! People who have learned to create harmony together should be given a festival of their own.... When the love is so palpable that it jumps off the picture, well - what a Glory!! Congrats to children and parents alike.
