My best friend Judy, 66, decided to get married. She and her husband, Marvin tied the knot just before Los Angeles was ordered to go in to quarantine in mid March. People have asked me why she would get married so “late” in life? I’ll tell you why. Because she wanted to feel fully committed to her significant other, and I applaud her for that. Also 66 is not “late in life”, by the way
Judy and I have been the dearest of friends since we were 10. We have a 50 year friendship that has withstood, boyfriends, breakups. marriages, children, and even a divorce. Judy had been divorced for almost 10 years. During that time, I met a couple of boyfriends along the way. But no one is more perfect for Judy than Marvin!!
What I think is great about a second marriage is that you get a whole new family. For some people that might not be so good, but in this case, I know that both families are going to love each other.
The following photo is all of the kids and their significant others. A new baby is expected in April so that will be one more to add to this newly blended family.
And last but not least is the wonderful groom Marvin. Marvin and Judy met in Washington D.C. where they were both living. Marvin was retiring and moved to San Diego. Judy retired shortly after that and moved to San Diego as well to be with Marvin. How wonderful is that?Two retired adults in San Diego where the weather is pretty nice and there are lots of things to do. They have their whole retirement years to spend traveling and exploring all the things they couldn’t do while they were working so hard.
Wishing Judy and Marvin a lifetime full of adventures and with love and respect for each other. It just warms my heart that Judy really did find her soul mate. It goes to show, “it’s never too late”. Don’t forget that ladies.
