December weddings and long marriages

A few more.

“Paul, my two sisters and my husband and I were all married in December,” wrote Kay Edmonds. “The oldest celebrating their 51st, the next their 49th and ours our 40th this year. Several of our dear friends also were married in December, including Doug and Carlie, Kathy and Pat, Carol and Don, and Nancy Sue and Marc — all over 39 years.”

Then there was this from Karen Joy.

“Paul, I hope it is not too late to weigh in on the longevity of December weddings,” wrote Karen Joy. “My parents (Dec. 1) were married for 54 and a half years when my dad died in 2004. Our friends Don and Judy (Dec. 31) were married for well over 50 years when they both died a few months apart a few years ago. My cousin, Pat, and her husband Ken (Dec. 26) are nearing the 50 years mark. Our friends Kim and Russ share Dec. 20 with us as a wedding date. They have been married for around 35 years. My husband Michael and I celebrate 41 years. We hope our younger son, Jon, and his wife, Nita, join all of us in long and happy marriages. They just celebrated three years of marriage on Dec. 5.”
