I was 24 and Gayle was 28 when we married. I didn’t get my MBA until I was 33 so you could say that I was still in college. I was also working at Sandia. Our 49th anniversary is in June.

Huzzah, Mr & Mrs Fred!

I was 34, my husband 28, when we married in 1988. My 3-semesters college roommate was 25, her husband, my friend from high school 23, when they married in 1979 on the same 22 December we chose.

I’m guessing you were younger when you married. It took me longer to find the right combination to work with my sigmas than for most women of my acquaintance. It hasn’t been a walk in London’s Hyde Park on a late spring in the early afternoon, as we each have failings, but when we might have divorced, we couldn’t afford it, and it was a three-generation household, thus a bit more complex.

Did any of you long-married folk marry before university?

I was afraid that, if I married before I had my BA at 22, that I’d never get it. Given the two idiots who pressured me to ignore that, I feel justified. I didn’t meet (interested) high-quality candidates until years later.
