Well, not exactly, but close (52). Not sure if this one of those things where close counts . . . or not.

I'm never getting remarried. I'll just find a woman that already hates me and give her my house.

If you are looking for a more mature woman - there is one available:

Never been married, so she will not be set in her ways....

WHY would anyone want tooooooo!!!!!!

That would be like getting out of prison after 40 years, and stealing a pack of gum at K-Mart!!!!

My dad did. He and his wife are celebrating their 30th anniversary next month and his 80th birthday the month after. My brother and my father got married the same year (1979). :)

I tried to several times but my wife always intervened. :lol:

My wife and I are both on our second marriages. She was 52 when we married. I was 42.

RonH 06-01-09 02:00 PM

Close but no cigar. I married wife #2 (the best :love:) when I was 47.

Sure, but no one would have me.

stapfam 06-01-09 02:49 PM

Daren't get rid of the one I have had for 35 years. No-one else would put up with me spending so much on the bikes.

At 50 I was enjoying 5 years of single life and I plan to keep it that way:)

Ooh, the Boy Toy! :D

We just celebrated our 5th anniversary, I was 44 when we hitched. In my case, the second time is much better.

Hey there, slow down a little.

You can get remarried?

HIPCHIP 06-01-09 04:28 PM

My wife did. :)

Ed in GA 06-01-09 05:26 PM

Didn't re-marry. Did Marry for the first time @ age 61. My bride was 43

Pamestique 06-01-09 05:28 PM

I was divorced at 30 and have been happily unmarried for 28 years. Way too set in my ways to ever consider marriage again. I like the freedom I have and I just have to clean up after my self. No picking up my husband's soiled undies and bath towels or having to explain where I am or going all the time. Not that I am soured on marriage mine you... but really like my life the way it is. Less time spent having to pick up and wash soiled undies, more time for cycling! It's a good thing! :thumb:

screenwasher 06-01-09 05:29 PM

I know of 4 friends (all undergraduate classmates now around 60), one of whom married for the first time in his early-50's, 2 others married for the second time in their mid-50s (both these guys became fathers of twin daughters from the second marriages in their late 50s) and the last guy got married in his late 50s for the third time. So, yes you can marry, remarry and re-remarry after 50 and continue to be alive active in all the right places - even if you are not a celebrity.

We're not all like that, ya know, Pamestique. I remarried at 48 myself. I hear you about the cycling time though...but on the other it was my wife who got me into cycling, so it's all good.
