On Falling and Loving and Sticking

 

Update:  I wrote this in February 2012, when Steve and I were on a series of post-diagnosis, memory-making trips, fighting the ticking of the clock with everything in us.  This week, the web site mentioned is back in the news and it reminded me of this little post about staying in love.  Also, I adore the picture I snapped of Steve while he was listening to his hero sing. 

 

 

—————————————–

 

While we were in Florida, I read an article about an online dating company.  Those are certainly not rare in this day and age, but this one is a novelty because they specialize in helping married people find dates with people other than their spouses.

 

 

 

Their slogan is Life is short.  Have an affair.

 

They claim they’re actually helping to save marriages by giving couples a way to meet other people while staying in their relationships.

 

And they’re making $60 million every year.

 

 

 

In other news, Steve and I went to an Andrea Bocelli concert on Sunday night.  Steve loves Andrea Bocelli and I love Steve.  And wouldn’t you know it? His encore was our song :  I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You.  Did I cry? Yes, I certainly did. And so did Steve.

 

 

 

 

And as I listened to that beautiful song, I thought of all those people, working so hard to cultivate new relationships with secret partners and wondered if there was a way that I could gather up the days they didn’t want to spend with their spouses…

 

 

 

…and save them up to spend with mine.

 

 

 

Is there an online site for people who Can’t Help Staying in Love?

 

Because that would be beautiful.

Holly Mc - Love this post and your love and dedication to your man 🙂 The concept of dating someone who is already taken? Are you kidding me? Absolute craziness! I’m way to selfish for that, and there are some things in life that simply should not be shared.

Gwen - I love the gift of communication God has given you – and the way you love the gift God gave you in Steve.

Teresa Brown - Just goes to show what the world has come to. There are so many people who have spouses who are living with various illnesses or who have lost, those who yearn for one more day or one more hour……then we have those who make a 60 million a year off of NOT spending that precious time with the one who said “I Do.” It’s truly sad.

Here’s your chance Bo, start that online site and the payment will be God’s graciousness and everlasting life! 🙂
