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

    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

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

    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).

    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.

    Ooh, the Boy Toy!

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

    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!

    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.
