On his 50th anniversary they were asked this question:

What has made your marriage so enjoyable and strong

In this day and age…when many marriages fall apart…

How is it you’ve stayed together for so long?


They paused for but a moment 

then the same thought entered their heads.

“I believe what has kept us together so long

has to do with dreams” he said.


“I had a dream about where my life would go

and what I was going to do

and I’m sure before I knew her

my wife had her dream too.”


“But the secret to our marriage”, she continued

“something we both long ago realized

was not only that our two dreams came together


but how they harmonized.”
