Yes we have made it to 30 years today, it only seems like yesterday. We have 4 wonderful children and one grandaughter and 3 step grandaughters. All of our children are engaged to be married our youngest our only daughter gets married next May and our oldest gets married September next year. So in our family 13 is a lucky number My dh was born on the 13 and my inlaws where married on the 13 they would of been married 54 years next month.
My tip for staying married so long that is easy just ask our kids they coppied us with this my DH is my best friend. We share a lot of intersts we are both country kids he grew up in the timber industry I grew up on a cattle property. We share the love of a lot of the same things even our hobbies. We enjoy being together in fact we would of been happy with just the 2 of us but we where blessed with 4 children.
