On the contrary, 40 years of happy marriage.... marriage is much to be admired... 80 years really, 40 years each!   :)

A credit to you both, you've stuck with each other through thick and thin and had fourty years of shared memories together.

I wish there were more people like you around, I'm sure the world would be a better place for it!

Married in Feb. 1966, same house, still chugging along. Can't move house because I have collected too much "stuff" (of the workshop variety).

33 years celebrated last week (+ 10 the first time around!).

However, the amazing one in our family is my father-in-law and mother-in-law 67 years!

Well, as a noted philosopher once said:
"Marry by all means. If you get a good wife you will be very happy. If you get a bad one you will become a philosopher and that is good for every man" {-)

Rich - the clue to what you're doing wrong is in "take her down number one" -
some things you have to do on your own  :o
