I have been married to my husband for 32 years, and am still his girlfriend thanks to the constant reminding of you.
We enjoy going out to lunch when we get a chance to do so, and wanted to tell you a funny story of one of our lunch dates. We were out of town at one of our favorite places so no one knew who we were. We always sit beside each other in the booth rather than across from each other. We were laughing and really enjoying each other when we noticed a couple about our age who looked like they were miserable and not enjoying their time together, we even commented how sad it was they were not treasuring their time with each other. When we got up to leave my husband stood up and waited for me to get out of the booth. I said, "Thank you for lunch. I had a really good time." He gave me a kiss and said, "You're welcome. Just don't tell your husband." The look of disgust we got from the other couple was priceless. We laughed all the way to the car.
You are so right about so many women who do not appreciate a good man when they have one.
