How to Enjoy 54 Years of Marriage

Initially, I was going to title this story, “How to Survive 54 Years of Marriage”. However, a good relationship is not just about surviving; but also enjoying. 

We got married in Riga, Latvia at the age of 20, had our first child at 21, and immigrated to Israel when we were 25, where our second daughter was born. At the age of 33, we moved to San Francisco. And for the last 35 years, we have built together a successful mortgage brokerage company. We have great relationships with our daughters and their significant others. And we enjoy our lives. 

Our secret can be summarized in two words – “Love and Gratitude”. On August 8th, as years before, my wife will receive a special bouquet of flowers. These three bouquets are for you, with love and gratitude.

Share and Enjoy!
