“I’ve been a banker all my life. I only started working by the time I was 28 and that what’s my entire focus was on — I didn’t pay too much attention to marriage, in fact I don’t think it even crossed my mind. I met my partner when I was 29, and we were great friends with a great understanding of each other. I’ve always been independent and focused on a path of self- discovery before anything else and he understood that. We decided to get married only 10 years later — not that we ever needed a piece of paper to validate our relationship; he was my partner in every aspect, long before we took those Pheras. There was a lot of noise around our wedding– so many people were talking about how it would never last…but people will always talk, what can you do?

But the wedding was a beautiful, small, intimate affair — we decided to get married on Monday and the same Friday we already were!

It’s been 28 years since, and even though we moved into becoming ‘senior citizens’ pretty quickly — we still often date. We eat together, travel extensively and almost every other Friday go out for a movie — it’s nice; it’s comfortable. He’s around here somewhere — thing is we both still love our space so because he’s so tall and I can never keep up with him…we go for our walks separately. It’s funny, sometimes I pass by him and we wave at each other like we’re two friends who haven’t seen each other in a while and after about an hour, we’ll both meet at one point and go home together!”
