Memorial Day Weekend!!! Not as great as hoped. Shopping on Saturday. Family BBQ on Sunday. [Death] Hangover 2 after BBQ. [Same movie, new laughs] Arguments, petty people, ready to fuck shit up. Played Volleyball. Made some revelations. Pinky Promise in the middle of the night. Better days/weekends await, I can only hope.
I’ve seen a lot of negative talk about couples getting married at a young age, I personally don’t care what point in time you get married. If you are in love and found the person you are going to spend your life with, the age you get married makes no difference.
We all have a twin. Some of us have never met the other. Many of us are trying to keep the other hidden. Everyone has another side of themselves. Some have accepted that fact and become one. Most haven’t and as a result fight a daily battle over which side is more prominent.
I just think it’s creepy when grown men do. Especially when they are on the train with their head back and eyes closed. It’s even creepier when they don’t have headphones on. The vibe that gives off is a unpleasant one.
Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher have an extraordinary story to tell. They’ve been married for 86 years. Together, they endured the Great Depression, World War II, the Korean War, Cuban Missile Crisis and Vietnam, they have seen the impact of the Civil Rights Movement, watched man land on the moon, the dropping of the atomic bomb, lived through the terms of 15 presidents and still live to tell about it. But there are many centenarians for whom the same holds true so what makes Herbert and Zelmyra so extraordinary? Throughout everything, they have remained married.
Married on May 13, 1924, 105-year old Herbert, and 103-year-old Zelmyra do not pretend to know any secrets to a lasting marriage. They have been married longer than any known living couple, had five children and have watched countless grandchildren and great-grandchildren come into the world. They are a sweet, aging pair that will tell you truthfully that they were married because Zelmyra “did not give [Herbert] any trouble” and Herbert “was not much to look at… [but] he was quiet and kind.” After 86 years, they remain in the home where they raised their five children, sleep in different bedrooms and love each other all the same. They hold the world record for length of marriage for two living persons. Is your union built to last the test of time?
