Do you think you and your dh will make it to 50 years? Why or why not?

My parents just celebrated 50 years together. Just wondering how many of you think you will or won't make it and why. I also did a poll too.

  • Yes. We are friends AND lovers. We respect each other, trust each other, and we have great communication. We also make compromises for each other & make each other laugh. I wouldn't trade my husband for anything in the world!

  • Yes, I definately do. I would have never married him if I didnt think we would make it to 50 years and beyond.

  • I think we will. We have been through so much to begin with, from financial ruin to some of the happiest times of our lives. We may get mad but we work through them instead of walking away. I have no doubt we will make it there and hope you do to.
