Good Marriage

A good marriage is one in which as each grows separately they also grow together.

William's Whimsical Words:

Riddle: What do you get when you cross a Welsh-English, North Dakota, Seventh Day Adventist, farm girl with a Ukrainian-Jewish, Brooklyn born, agnostic, city boy?
Answer: A successful thirty-two year marriage and a remarkable blended family.
