YAH, I have often heard my elders say that. I would imagine so. I can think of quite a few examples in my family and his family, too. I am closer to Matt now. There are still days where I want to strangle him--usually about him being tight with finances--but all in all, I have no complaints with him. He has put up with me all these years, so I hope he knows that it is too late to run away from it all.
I agree. I simply appreciate and respect the longevity. In this day and age, some people just give up at the first sign of trouble. I want no part of their trials and tribulations. I have had my share of hell the past year.
