I remember reading somewhere that the bonds between people who've been through hell together (traumatic experiences, battle, etc.) can be incredibly strong, based on coming through the hardship together. You and Matt have been through hell and back, and I do believe that getting through it successfully only makes a relationship stronger. I'm glad things are going well for you two.

Don't worry about not living up to your parents' relationship - you're continuing to build a strong one of your own, a different one, and that's as it should be. Your parents may have gone through different hells of their own.

A big congrats to your parents on their anniversary, BTW.
