    I thought this couple should be recognized and used for motivation (They are in the Guiness book of records as the longest marriage of a living couple) I was reading about them in the paper last night, this morning I went looking for something about the on Youtube. Here is a video about them along with some images.

    Even those of us who do not care for the whole marriage and wedding vow stuff, if we wish to have at least respectful and good natured relationships, we should learn something from these people, our elders.

    Yall are really desperate. Foreal.

    I wonder how many women he done slept wit or what she done had to put up with for all them years.


    Of how many times they had to forsake 'traditional' to have the kind of marriage that worked for them.


    I'm not much impressed, but ok, I give'm props.
    That's nice.... real niiice indeed.
    Hope they got a nice cookie for their efforts. :court: :rain:

    Sista, I been reading a lot of your post and up until now, I have enjoyed much of what you have had to say. I have given you much props and have appreciated you for real. Right now though sista, I feel that you have shown a real disrespect and are out of line.

    If you paid attention and looked real close, you would have seen that I don't care for marriage, and the whole taking vows thing, however, for those that do care for that stuff, I respect them and encourage their efforts in a positive way and put up positive images to support.

    It is not for you or me to imply that one should or should not be interested in marriage sista, it's just not. I am not a Christian either, but those that are, I don't try and take that away from them, if it works for them, as long as they are not putting down other black people, believing in white Jesus, or trying to force me to see things there way, so be it, let them have their Christianity.

    This is not a go at going back and forth with arguing this matter, I have said what I have to say on this :10500: and you can take it for what it is worth or leave it.


    Take care sista...

    No, it's much better to settle for being a baby momma, baby daddy, never show our children real working relationships that weather and work through problems; it's better to play house, shack up and split bills ... ?

    That's real progressive.

    Sister:whip: how can you say that about these people you don't even know
    that was a low blow and disrespect to this couple who have done what a great deal of us cant do or done ........shame on you :nono:
    I hope you rethink your actions here,:court: I say it's a blessing and beautiful
    to see some of our elders stay together and live by there vows

    Sure you had a bad twist in love / man and maybe marriage but no need
    to slander others marriage or hold bitterness against it....Marriage is a beautiful thing
    when two soul are join as one .........Thank about it !

    2 years is to long for me but I admire those who can be committed for 85 years.

    Guess I set the tone for this thread huh?
    Most of the comments are responses are to my comment.

    Maybe if I had shortened it like you did, that would have went over better :rolleyes: :court:

    cynicism is cynicism. :ghost:

    I should have left it alone :10500:

    Workinprocess....
    since my comments have irritated you to no apparent avail :rolleyes:

    here are apologies on that...

    Now you can quit following me.... please?

    To see that comment in its entirety...
    http://www.destee.com/forums/showthread.php?t=59859&page=5

    I didn't think you were interested in that part, so that's why I left it out.
    I think the apology should suffice.
