I see previews for this summer’s season of The Bachelorette on TV. The beginning of a new relationship is so fun. Tingles. Nerves. Potential. It is all there. I can see why the show is appealing to those who are also in the early stages of a relationship (or looking for one to start).
And then there is another kind of romance. The kind that lasts past those beginning tingles and endures the curve balls of life. This summer I’ll be helping my in-laws celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. As with any marriage that lasts 50 years, they have seen job changes, cross-country moves, children, grandchildren, health issues, car accidents, awards, friendships and forest fires. And still their love continues. Inspiring!
