We rarely saw each other in person as he lived in the UK and started university there just after we first met. We communicated by phone calls and letters. We only saw each other during holiday times. When we married he worked very hard gaining promotion after promotion and I was in charge of looking after the home and rearing the children.
Yes, I know you have just had your 50th anniversary Tara, but initially that sounded more of a business arrangement if you don't mind me saying.
I believe each one of us will look for different qualities in a prospective partner.
It may be good looks, humour, personality, warmth, kindness - even smell!
We won't ever all agree, simply because different things matter to different people.
There is no right or wrong, it is just a case of what 'turns you on' so to speak.
Good job we don't all like the same, else we'd all be fighting over the same person, and the rest of the world would be lonlely and unloved.
