When he was in the second grade, my Father was convinced that he was going to marry my Mother. They dated and courted. Dad hitch-hiked across the state of Pennsylvania to see her in college. They married in 1967 and as they are getting ready to celebrate their 50 year anniversary, they have offered up 50 pieces of advice that have helped to keep their marriage strong through the storms.

My Mother was diagnosed with Addison’s Disease in 1971, and her health has been hit or miss over the years. Dad traveled internationally for the first 20 years of their marriage. They have given “in sickness and for worse” a run for its money. They have always been head over heels in love with each other, and love each other more every day they are together.
