Congratulations! If he can say the same it certainly does. Hopefully you have another 22 at least.

Although I'm happy for you I have to ask, does he still love the other woman?

I have no idea. It did not occur to me to ask since I don't care.

That seems odd but if you're happy then so be it.

It seems odd that you'd piss on her thread like you did.

We went to a country fair with friends and our daughter. But we did lots of kissing.

Re: 22 years this weekend!

I'm married 24 years but with a lot of ups and downs, still in counselling.
To me longevity of the relationship is not success it's the quality of the relationship that counts as success. Anyone else have thoughts on this?

Perhaps you could start a thread on the topic (and keep it off of here).
