26 Years!

It's Krissy!

I’m 52, and today is the 26th anniversary of me and Krissy getting married, which means, if I haven’t entirely lost my ability to do math, I’ve been married to Krissy for almost exactly half my life, and have had her in my life for an even larger percentage. Not gonna lie, looking to increase those percentages quite a bit before it’s all said and done. She’s terrific.

I hope you have a great Scalzi Anniversary; we plan to.

  1. Congrats! You seem to enjoy life and each other, and I hope that continues for your lifetimes.

  2. Ain’t it grand when you compare your presence on this planet with major events of your life?

    In your case, John, that’s a most excellent comparison and we wish you many more opportunities to compare.

    I think I still have 18 years before I can compare to you and Krissy. I started late in life.

  3. Congrats to you both! Great to see a mutually supportive relationship, and a remarkable toleration of “burrito” abominations

  4. Congrats
    You meet Krissy and your life just gets better and better. Glad you’re working to keep it that way.

  5. Conga-rats! May you have many more years together!

    Hubby & I are trying to catch up to you – 19.33 years so far.

  6. Congratulations! I did some math, and concluded that you and Krissy got married when you were a smidgen older than myself and my husband. We’re coming up on 24 years and still going strong. Love (and the ability to communicate using only grimaces and eyebrows) really does get better with age.

  7. Congratulations. Martha and I mark 26 this fall (and 35 years since we first started dating). I suspect you’re like me, and the years before Krissy (the Dark Years) are just a blur.

  8. Happy, happy, happy for many more years. Sounds like you’ve got a great start… all husbands should be as pleased with their wives!

  9. Happy Anniversary to you and Krissy. Here’s hoping you guys have many more years together. Congratulations!

  10. Congratulations to you both!

    May would have been my 26th, but we couldn’t keep it together. It’s a fine thing you have, and it can be hard to recover if you lose your balance in such a pairing. I know I haven’t.

    Here’s to another third of your life in health and happiness together!

  11. First of all congratulations. Your numerology got me thinking. I’ve been married as long as you’ve been alive, 52 years. I’m 78, still spinning, so I’ve been married two thirds of my life (it gets easier, BTW). My oldest kid, who loves doughnuts, is 45. Her oldest kid acts three times her age of 11. (🎶)

  12. Happy Anniversary! I am close to exactly your age (and my eldest very close to Athena’s age), but I seem to have gotten married a little younger than you did – we’re coming up hot on 30 years at our next anniversary. It’s great when you find the right person, isn’t it?
