  •  I think my mother feels the same way (7+ / 0-)

    She's talked about having had a good life.  20 years younger than my father, but she's ready to go.

      senior that I was likely to become a widow. But hell, I was 32 he was 54, and we had so much fun. I don't think either expected our marriage to become so strong or to last for 30 years.
