The time: 1973
The place: Toronto area, Canada
The year 1973 was such a memorable one! I started working,
moved in with my fiancé and then got married, on Aug. 4th.
Excerpts from my article ‘How To Sustain a Love Relationship’:
We had to pay for the wedding ourselves, because of family opposition. Hubby wanted the traditional Italian reception; multi-course meal, live band, etc. I loved the idea, but, being young and foolish, didn’t realize the expense involved. Neither did he, so we borrowed the money, thinking the wedding gifts, (Italians offered cash instead of material items), would cover expenses. Sadly, they didn’t and we started our married life together in debt.
Bad idea, but everyone had a blast! Je ne regrette rien. (I regret nothing)
The years passed quickly, with many ups and downs, thanks to our stubborn “Alpha” personalities. We even came to the brink of divorce a couple of times, but were determined to salvage the relationship. Ultimately, we worked everything out and are now happier than ever.
All month, I’ve been reminiscing about the old days and the music attached to those memories. In the summer of 1973, The Carpenters had a huge hit with the following song. Read the lyrics on screen. This is exactly how I feel about one of my biggest passions. And HERE.
What are your passions in life?
Looking forward to your comments!
