According to today's date - April 28, 2005 - Mom-Dad have been married for 21 years.
I've been alive for only 18 years and they have been living together for 21 years!! Just amazing how two individuals from separate familes, brought-up amongst different people, different surroundings, get to be spouses and spend years and years and years together. A time comes when the years spent with the spouse exceeds the number of years spent with parents. At one time the parents knew everything about their child, but then it's not the parents anymore. It's the husband or the wife who knows the person way, way better than anybody had ever known or would know.
Heh... life's a funny little tale.
