She is not perfect. I am not perfect. Our marriage is not perfect. If you get to know me, you'll come to understand I have reasons to be here. I flirt innocently. All kinds of stuff. But, regardless, I love her and that's that. I have no plan, intention, or thoughts of leaving her. She is right for me.

After all these years, it's not 'honeymoon' time. The sex is few and far between. There are pounds where there once were none. Because we're not young anymore.

"Do you still love me even though I'm not like I used to be when I was younger?"

"Yes, sweetheart, I do."

"But I'm not skinny, I'm not horny, I'm..."

"Stop, sweetheart, Stop. You don't need to worry about it. Do you know why?"

"No, why?"

"I know you're not young anymore, how could you possibly be? You gave ALL your young years to me. Nobody will ever give me a better gift than that. All the young years you had, you gave to me."

I love her. I am happily married.
