Today is M&D's anniversary. FIFTY SEVEN YEARS, people.
I called them to wish them many happy returns (what does that mean, anyway?), and mentioned that I had heard about this new "Negotiable Length Marriage Contract" thing that Mexico is thinking of doing. Basically, it's a lease. You decide how long your marriage contract would last (let's say, two years), and at the end of the time, you can either walk away; no harm, no foul; or you can do it again.
Dad said that while they may have gotten the 57-year term contract, he plans to re-up.
What a relief.
Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!
