Marriage After 70? George & Carol…this is Their Story:
George lost his wife. Not in a forest or at the mall…she died.
Carol divorced her husband after 22 years…then swore off men.
20 years later (yes, she’s 72) she ran into George (her childhood’s brother’s best friend) (Okay if I screwed up the ‘s…as a writer, s’s are not my thing…) and George was thrilled to see her.
After meeting again, they spent every day together for 3 months. Till her asked her to marry him and she said yes.
She said, “I never, ever, ever thought I’d find love again, but I’m 72 and madly in love with a man I haven’t seen since I was 14.”
The day I met them they were both retired and headed to Hawaii for 3 months to just hang out and live someplace new for awhile.
Don’t we all want that? Find a partner to “do life” with? A partner that will just “be.” Be their own person while you be your own person and together you have a relaxed, loving, supportive marriage/friendship.
How do we get that?
Never, ever stop believing it will happen.
Ha! Of course Carol thought it would never happen…and it did? She says she just got lucky…she was just happy being with herself.
And truly…that’s what men want. Men want a woman who is happy on her own. Because if his end all result is to make you happy…and you are already happy…well…then…he’s almost done!
