Married 14 Years Today

WeddingToday is my 14th wedding anniversary. I honestly love my marriage (and wife) more and more with each passing year.

My wedding was unusual. I shared the story six years ago.

We both had classes that chilly Toronto afternoon, but we had an appointment we couldn't miss. Ten days earlier, while chatting on the phone with my twenty year old girlfriend of less than eight months, the topic of marriage came up. "We should just do it now", one of us suggested. The next morning we met at Ossington Station and got our marriage license at New City Hall for $53. The next stop was Old City Hall where we booked a time with the Justice of the Peace to get hitched. The cost was another $53 and the next available time was 2:00pm on January 15th. We took it and never looked back.

I'm a very lucky SOB. Happy Anniversary, sweets.

Ya know in the movies when ya see the goofy leading actor has a great looking leading lady?
You say to yourself “there’s no way in real life he could get a women as good looking as her!”.

Mike ya proved it could be done.

I think about the costs of most weddings, and the way you did it is just fine :)

Is it just me, or did anyone else notice that he said he's loving his marriage (not his wife) more with each passing year?

C'mon Mike....
