“Today we celebrate our tenth anniversary. As we look back into our married life we are filled with gratitude. ‘Had not the Lord been on our side,’ when my sweetheart had three surgeries; when we tried to have children in vain; when we were scorned and mocked by the heartless; when I sometimes felt my manliness challenged because of my childlessness, we would have gone different ways.
Today I celebrate fidelity to one wife
I celebrate love “not because,” but “in spite of”
I celebrate the choice I made to commit my life to my beautiful wife
I celebrate the truths I was taught by a childless marriage
I celebrate love, happiness, peace and joy
I celebrate being a Happy Husband that married a Happy Wife
I celebrate defying the notion that childless marriages must be dissolved”
