Love & Marriage Love & Marriage

So this weekend my Grandparents are celebrating there 50th Anniversary party!! Saturday they have been married 50 wonderful years!!! Isn't that amazing!!! Can you imagine your Hubby and you in 50 yrs??? How many more years do you have until then? How old will you be??


A little info and pictures!!! My Grandmother got pregnant at 15 yrs old by a jackass of a guy. (Can't remember for sure...but I believe they actually married) She delivered my father via c-section b/c he was coming out butt first. She delivered her second child about 10 months later (My Aunt Robin) She got away from the abusive drunk (whom I have never meant but refuse to call my Grandfather) When she meant my Grandfather she was 18. He was in the Navy. She meant him one day and the next he was gone a month. When he returned they got engaged and he was gone for another 3 months and then they were married the 3rd time he came back on land! It was a quick union and he adopted my father and Aunt! He raised them as his own! They eventually added two more children to their family (my Aunt Danielle and Uncle Todd) 50 yrs later they are still happily married!! My Grandfather has always been my best friend and he has always treated me as if I was biologically his!!

Here are some old pics of them and my father and aunts and uncle!

aww. I love stories like this! My grandparent's celebrated their 50th anniversary right before I got married. My grandfather even gave me his original wedding band. My grandma was 16 when they got married, my grandfather was 17 I believe. The eloped and she got pregnant on their wedding night! I love hearing them talk about when they were in high school together and eloping.
