I never expected to get married, at least for the first time at age 50! That age was not my ideal for marital beginnings. I always thought and so did others, think that it would happen a lit earlier in my life, like at age twenty five. As life turns, it didn't turn out that way. Other things like school, career and just plain, ordinary everyday living took their priority over finding a spouse. However, as mysterious as life is, someone else was experiencing the same ordinary everyday life priorities that I was experiencing. Marriage was on the back burner for him as well. Our friends were surprised and a little shaken and taken aback by our decision to get married at that age! Our sanity was definitely questioned. Fast forward, we happily celebrated our seventh anniversary in July.
