I was 50 and he was 52. It was love at first bifocal.
Yes, my Newlywed at 50 (N@50) posts are back! I had to stop posting for a while because things were getting a bit too personal. In telling the story of my first marriage at age 50 I found myself telling other people’s stories as well. That’s what happens when your husband has an ex-wife and children and you are much too close to your mother and brother. Well, I realized that some stories were not mine to tell and it was too difficult to figure out what not to write. That all changed when my husband and I saw his cousin and her daughters on Jerry Springer. Yes, Jerry Springer, and even though there is a youtube video of the segment I refuse to link to it. Let’s just say my blog posts don’t come anywhere close to what we saw on Jerry Springer so N@5o is back on.
Another reason that N@50 is back on is because my husband and I celebrate our second anniversary next week. Yes, that means I’m now 52, but don’t tell anybody. We’ve had a year of celebrations and challenges. While I couldn’t share them with you while we were experiencing them, I look forward to sharing them with you now.
In my first post of the re-started series, which will be up on October 20, I write about how my husband earned his hero status during the first year of our marriage. Stay tuned!
