Our Diamond Wedding Anniversary (10-10-59 to 10-10-19)

 

The 60th wedding anniversary for a couple is named as the “Diamond Wedding Anniversary”. It is, however, far less well known than the 50th (Golden) anniversary. One reason is that to celebrate the DATE requires a stable emotional and intelligence compatibility bond between two people over more than half a century as well as longevity for two persons (both husband and wife need to live beyond 80 years). This is often not possible particularly in olden times when reaching your 70th birthday is considered “ancient and rare”. Thus it is our good luck that Sophia and I have reached this milestone in reasonably good health both mentally and physically. We can still enjoy and do most of the things that normal young persons do but with greater appreciation, and as Frank Sinatra says in his signature song “. . . and we did it our way” with our own effort and few regrets. Our children already gave us a big party ten years ago for our 50th http://blog.sciencenet.cn/blog-1565-264064.html , http://blog.sciencenet.cn/blog-1565-263414.html. This time we opted for a low key family reunion in our vacation home plus renting AirBnB http://blog.sciencenet.cn/home.php?mod=space&uid=1565&do=blog&id=1196822 . Every member of our family including our first future grandson-in-law came for the occasion (except our older daughter since her husband came down with a sudden illness. But she participated using Facetime and e-mail). No one can ask for more. For photos taken by various members of the family go to https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipPzyhAn58ZwVRhBBqX1Ij8KaeH11w-2InUUCw8tl9JYORE9yeYpguvZ94TIUOW2KQ?key=bmQxeUlKdExPQk1RbHdUdEJLRmNySGlOZnlYTWhR
