Grow old along with me

Today's helpful hint: Marry someone you really, really like and respect.*

Today's flashback photos: May 25, 2002 (click here for a couple more wedding pictures)

* This sounds really obvious until you think about the couples you know and how many of them seem to have nothing but disdain for each other.

One of my college pastors told us this true story: A guy was getting married at our church and in the course of premarital counseling the pastor learned the guy's best man was actually going to be a woman -- his best friend. The pastor's reaction? "You're marrying the wrong woman!" Whenever I think about this advice I think about that story.
