Just as a boost to those who think love never lasts...

Today marks the 14th anniversary of the day I asked Mrs MOK out.

Bearing in mind the age of most of you, I feel particularly old now <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    if i had asked a girl out 14 years ago, i woulda been about 2 1/2. which is just very scary. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif"&gt;

    Look into these tired eyes. See something you might recognise.

    awww thats well sweet, you remember the day you started going out, as well as your anniversary of your marriage too i would think <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt; with my mum and dad its all a bit hazy and confusing with whole other marriages in the middle. and its not like theyre still in love or anything <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif"&gt; oh ive just depressed your post, *STOP*

    i think its great that people can be together for this long and still be happy, it just goes to show that its not all hopeless and relationships arent all doomed to fail! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt; which was a popular opinion of mine after... erm a relationship failed lol.. im sure ill meet him some day <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    Not that I want to kill the thread, but I kinda rememeber it because it's also the anniversary of the day that the South African Govt massacred 575 schoolchildren in Soweto 1976 <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    Guess it just stuck in my memory.

    Oh and our wedding anniversary is 22nd August, but no massacres that day (the Stag Night was the week b4 <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif">)

    Ok, I know most of you weren't born then. in fact, I suspect there aren't many of you who remember much about apartheid.

    I was only six myself in 1976, but apartheid was the big issue when I was a teenager - even more than the environment or WTO is today. Steve Biko is a big hero of mine, more so than Nelson Mandela.

    and yes amadee Mrs MOK is a lucky lady <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    MOK, as a mark of my tiredness, i just took all that as meaning you had your first date when you were 6. unless that IS what you meant...?

    sorry, i wasnt born in 1976 for another 6 years <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    There's a girl in my mirror
    I wonder who she is
    Sometimes I think I know her
    Sometimes I really wish I did

    No, I think he meant the day he asked her out was the anniversary of that massacre, not the actual day lol!

    I don't remember apartheid but for GCSE I did a study about it and watched the video "Cry Freedom" about Steve Biko which had the Soweto massacre in it so I know about it.

    And congratulations, here's to the next 14 <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    silly billy gfm <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt; he said he was 6 in 1976, meaning he was born in 1970, so he's either 30 or 31 now & he started dating mrs mok 14 years ago, so he was 16 or 17 then.

    I was 17 when I met her, married her five years later, when I was 22.

    FYI I'm now 30 (soon 2b 31) and I'm telling you now 30 comes around fast <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    i'm far too cynical when it comes to relationships (unfortunately this comes from bad experiences)... thanks for sharing your story, it gives me hope (at least a little).
