My parents made it to 41 years. My mother had MANY medical problems for most of their time together. My father stayed with her and took care of her up to and including her final days. In today's world it is hard to find people who stay together for long periods of time. At the first sign of trouble, they skip out, file for divorce, and go their own ways. It is so refreshing to see a couple in it for the long haul.
