Life with Suzie – the beginning

Suzie and I have been married for just over thirty two years. She is still the love of my life and the person I most enjoy being with. Life with her is fun and spontaneous and things just seem to happen.
Suzie is always cheerful. She has the ability to light up the room when she walks in, with her sense of fun and laughter – a friend of ours named her Sunshine Suzie, because of her cheerful disposition. I guess that was one of the first things that attracted me to her.

When we met, we clicked instantly and within 10 weeks of meeting we were married. At the time she was working in a laboratory, at the brewery in Harare and I was a student. One of her perks was two free crates of beer a month. My friends maintained that she could not possibly have married me for my money, so I obviously married her for her beer.

We have always had a happy home and our life together, is filled with many anecdotes, which I intend sharing with her blessing of course (except those I have been forbidden to share).

Looking forward to your stories, Max. Sounds exciting! :-)

It's beautiful and a big gift too, to find the love of your life and to spend that many years with him/her.

My big love of my life and I will celebrate our 7th year of happiness together on first of August. :-)

Congratulations to you and to Suzie! It is very comforting for me to hear that you love and appreciate each other after so many years of being together!
It is a sad thing when a relationship ends after, say 10 years or so. It happened to me 20 years ago and I was extremely sad then and had to start my life all over again.
But now I'm happy again :)
