Hey Alison, welcome back!  I love to hear your comments.  You are right, there are so many divorces now that it seems the norm with long happy marriages being an exception, how sad is that? Congratulations to your Aunt on her successful marriage of 44yrs.  MamaB X

Nicole, yet another thoroughly interesting read! I had no idea about any of that. I think I found it extra interesting as I have lived abroad amongst many mixed marriages for the passed 20 years, many of which have failed due to cultural differences, so I can understnd your father-in-laws fears. My parents also had a very difficult time gaining "permission" to marry as my mum was Catholic and my father was Church of England. My mum had to convert to C of E (much to her mother's fury). I am still in possession of all the letters full of heart ache for what should have been such a happy time for them. I am pleased to say they had a long and happy marriage until the day my mum passed away. My mum's sister also did the "unthinkable", she married an african. She was shunned by many friends and family but she too stuck to her guns. FORTY FOUR YEARS later, they are still together and still so in love and he is the most wonderful man you could ever meet. With the world so full of divorce nowadays, isn't it wonderful to know that there are true love-stories out there. Congratulations to you both and I wish you many more happy years together.

Welcome to my vintage life where I am living my dream renovating an old stone villa in the hills of Grasse, spending my time scouring the local flea-markets finding all things old, vintage and shabby to give this little old house a soul.
