Aloha Friday~Anniversary Edition

Friday is the day that Hawaiians take it easy and get ready for the weekend. So in that spirit we’re asking a simple question. Head on over to An Island Lifefor more Aloha Friday fun and to sign Mr. Linky if you’re playing.

This was supposed to be our Aloha Friday post from last Friday, May 29th, but we were a little busy getting ready for the big party, so here it is, a week late.

Today is our Parent’s 50th Wedding Anniversary!  Can you believe that???  50 years to the same person?  That’s 18,270 days, or 600 months, or 438290.639 hours being married to the same person!!  (in case you were wondering that).  So in honor of this landmark occasion, our question today is:

How long have you been married and how did you meet your spouse?

I met my husband on a blind date, and we have been married 13 years. (Stacy)

I met my husband when I was 16 and he was 20. We were both working part-time at a local grocery store. We’ve been married 25 years. (Elle)

    Me and my husband have been married 7 yrs. We met when I was 20 working at the BX of the Air Force Base he was stationed at. 🙂

  2. Hooah!! This will age me ~ LOL! We have been married 31 years and I met my husband the summer before 9th grade when he came to our driveway to play basketball with all the neighborhood kids – they had just moved to our little town in Nebraska!! We dated off and on thru high school, but always remained best of friends. I got married in college, graduated and stayed married for only 3 yrs! Hubby was engaged to be married but called off his wedding and somehow we got together! (His mother still lives only 2 blocks away from my parents!) So Happy 50th to your parents! We did a video with tons of pictures and great music for our parents 50th!

    We dated for 5 years and have been married for 11 years. I met him through one of his friends’ wife. I had only known her a week or two but my daughter had went to school with her daughters and they “loved” my daughter. I had never heard of her daughters until we were invited over their house.

    My hubby and I will be married 4 years in August. We met online in a yahoo group. Neither of us were looking to meet anyone or wanting to date. But we became fast friends, started dating and it all grew from there.

    We’ve been married 25 years (our anniversary is on the 17 of June, so we’re close to 26). He moved to my hometown when he was 18 to attend college. He drove past my house every day on the way to the school….I made an effort to figure out who he was and we first met through a mutual friend of ours. Our first date was at the lake!
