We're The Old Couple Now.....My wife and I have been holding hands since we began dating over 35 years ago. We used to giggle at the cute old couples who were holding hands. Now we are the cute old couple holding hands. A greeter at a store commented about us holding hands like two love struck children. That is only the latest of many comments we have received.
Our hand-holding grew into a security blanket several years ago when we were in counseling around my **** addiction. We were intent on saving our marriage and ourselves by clinging together! I don't know why she stayed with me then.
