Email of the Day: My “Gift of the Magi” Marriage

Email of the Day: My “Gift of the Magi” Marriage

Before the holiday, you told the story of “The Gift of the Magi.” I always tear up at that story. And, yes, there ARE marriages like that.

 

My husband and I have been married for almost seven years and have never had even a serious disagreement. We are one of those ridiculous couples who tend to think the same thing at the same time, who are almost always totally in sync, and who adore each other (and say so constantly).

 

We firmly believe that if your goal in life is to make your spouse happy, it will come back to you tenfold. We never wake up asking ourselves what we can do that day to make the other happy, because it’s just automatic! We have some very wealthy friends who aren’t as happy as we are. We, on the other hand, live modestly on our two social security checks and the little my husband makes on the side, and we are happy and grateful most of the time. He even called me from work recently “just to hear my voice,” even though he had kissed me good-bye only four hours before.

 

I imagine that it doesn’t hurt that we were each happily married for many years and met after both of us were widowed, so we already knew the ropes.
