Dennis: She Still Owns My Heart

My wife makes my heart beat — and many times, she makes it skip a beat. She's done this for 35 sweet years. Have I fallen to the marketing of Hallmark to make it so? Nope. Do I ignore Hallmark's main cash-cow day? Heavens no. (Think I'm crazy? ha) However, do I allow it to prompt me to HAVE to get her something…um, anything…. No. I love my bride 365 days a year. Each day has a heart attached to it.  My heart. And each weekend I am amazed that I get the honor of hanging out with my Susan. What caused this? Sweet tender, gushy love? Maybe at first. Maybe. I think I fell in love with her mind and her compassion, her strength of character and her way with people. Not just her kisses/Dennis Mansfield. More here.

Question: Does your family have a history of long, successful marriages?
