I am (a very young!) 71 years old. My husband and I have been married nearly 38 years and we have one wonderful son and 2 beautiful grandchildren - a boy age 11 and a girl age 8. My hubby and I had a lovely small wedding in a nearby church, as I had been previously married. I wore an ivory wedding gown, a hat with a veil, and he wore a "morning coat" outfit (our ceremony was at 11AM). Afterwards in the church hall, we had a champagne and hors d'oeuvres reception with wedding cake and coffee. In the evening, our immediate family had dinner at a nearby elegant restaurant which was in a historic old Dutch farmhouse. Because I am Roman Catholic, and divorced, I was not able to get married in the Catholic Church. I have since petitioned to have the first marriage annulled by the Church and a decision is imminent. In anticipation of the annulment, and at the urging of my best friend who is also our church's music director (and who has, along with our pastor, helped, supported and encourage me in the annulment process, I have made some preliminary plans for a "convalidation" ceremony in my church - a Catholic marriage ceremony for couples who were previously married outside the Church. My husband and I never had the chance to have a honeymoon - we moved into our house right away and a year after our wedding, our son was born. So now we are planning the ceremony and honeymoon we never got to have.

Happily married 🎉
