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.

Re: Divorce

When our parents got married, it was practically impossible to get a divorce. (Lori--You and I are from the same generation.) Yes, many couples stayed together because they felt stuck. Is THAT good for the children? I think we all know the answer to that question. Your parents are obviously very special and caring people. You are of course very lucky to have them and I wish all of you a mazal tov.

one should get married when one finds one's bashert

big mazal tov to your parents. it really is a big achievement to have stayed married to the same pesron for 60 years. However, it sounds more like you are putting down people who married later in life (for whatever reason) than celebrating those who married early.
btw, today in Israel in the "dati" sector there is unfortunately a growing "trend" of people marrying early due to pressuer from their surrounding who after two three years realize that they married too early.
also, a long marriage does not necessarily equal a happy marriage.
