My wedding picture

Since I have been posting pictures of me when I was younger, I thought I would post a picture of me and my ex on our wedding day. It does bring back memories of the best day of my life. At least it used to be the best day of my life. I still care about him, and I am hoping that maybe someday, we might get back together again. If that never happens, then I have excepted it. The church we got married in is the church I grew up going to every weekend. I am happy that I finally found my wedding album, as I can have the pictures to look at. I hope you all enjoy the picture as much as I have over the years.

He lives 125 miles from me, so about 2 hours by car. That isn't bad, at all, and we do talk everyday, so it could happen.

@TiarasOceanView No it cetainly isn't, but maybe one day, things will be different. I am also glad that we talk to each other every day, as I do think that he still cars about me, but is afraid to say anyting. Thee has to be something to that, since he calls me every day, at the same time. I am happy to talk to him too.

you are so welcome. It sure does bring back memories, of years gone by, as we got married in 170, so that is why the picture looks so discolored.

Thank you so much. It turned out prettier than what I thought it would, as I really don't like dazies, but the florist did a very good job on all the flowers for the attendants as well as for mine. My gown was only $90 and the vail, $35. I made sure I wasn't going to spend a fortune for my dress, when I was only going to wear it once.

Thank you for saying so. I was only 22 in that picture, and that was so long ago, but you know, I remember my wedding day, like it was yesterday. That might seem odd, but I guess that since it involved me, I would remember it more than if it happend to another family member.

@Drosophila yea, I got married at the age of 22. My dad really didn't like him all that well, at first, but he did learn to love him later on.

Thank you. I just wish the color hadn't faded, as all the pictures were kept in the album. I guess though, since the wedding was in 1970, it would fade. I love all my wedding pictures, faded or not.

@just4him It has been in the ablum too, and the album is on the shelf, so it isn't in the son. At least the pictures are still intact, even though they are all faded.

I think you are right, as I do hope that we do get back together again, but I am not going to worry about it if it doesn't happen,, as it really isn't up to me, or him, as it is what God wants for us.

@SIMPLYD You are so right. It isn;t up to either one of us, as it is up to God whether we get back together or not. I am not going to be uspet if he says no ,as he knows more than either one of us does. He knows what is best for us more than we know oursleves.

Thank you. Things don't always go the way we planned, and that is a shame when it happens, but we just have to deal with things as they come, and hope for best. One good thing though is that we still talk to each other everyday,. We have become very good friends and I am glad about that.

Karen, thanks for sharing your photo. You were a beautiful bride. Sorry to hear the marriage didn't pan out. As a product of divorce which runs in my family (my parents, my aunt and uncle, and my brother and first SIL), I hope you can stay friends with him in some way.

He said that he fell out of love with me and that we were no longer compabile, all after 35 years. I was confused, and still am, but I have forgiven him and moved on without him. I would like to get back together with him, but if it isn't meant to be thet i will accept it. I am glad that we do still talk though.

I am shy but I was very happy that day, as we only knew each other for a few months, and then decided to get married, and it lasted 35 years. I am thakful it lasted that long, and hopefully, we will get back together again sometime.
