This comeing october my grandparants will have been married sixty years. Is it posable the some one getting married today will ever see a sixtyth anaversry? Do people really ever fall in love like that any more? I hope to be with the girl I am married to for sixty years. But girls like her is hard to find. We have only been married a short time compared to my grand parents. But it would be wonderful if we could look back at are years togethere sixty years from the day we got married

A couple would have be very young (and dumb) or live a very long time to accomplish that. Love has nothing to do with it. It's all about time and inertia. Personally, I'm uncomfortable with more than five years.

I don't know if we will see a sixty year anniversary, mainly because we were older when we got married - we just might not live that long. :( But I do think that we're in it for the duration. We've already survived some pretty tough stuff, and we have no money. If we can still be in love through the tough times, then how can we not be through the easier times?

Wow! You must have a grand celebration for their 60th wedding anniversary. It seldom happened now. You are lucky to witness their anniversary. People like them are blessed by God. I wish i and my husband could celebrate our 60th anniversary too.

I have known some couples here in the Philippines who last for long time. Even lifetime. They married at an early age around 14 years old and then up until now they are still together. Staying and being together for that long is very nice relationship. Maybe they really love each other or their is no choice but to stay together because they have sons or daughters. I think they have encountered a lot of ups and downs but they still hold on with each other. Well, good for them and say my congratulations to them. I think now, the new generation couples when they have misunderstadings, even for some it is just little they already separated. How sad.

wow i've had that conversation with one of my friends years ago, and honestly no I don't think the majority of married couples today can stay together for 60 years. That is a very big achievement, congrats to them both. the divorce rate in the US is already 50 percent, I forget what the average length of marriage today is. I'd like to know that. But too often today people get married for the wrong reasons and then don't have the guts to stick it out and try to make it work because it is so easy to just get a divorce and move to the next person. I guess 60 years ago, that might have had something to do with it too.
