28 Years Married

We’re on vacation and have fun things to do, so I will be brief and note that 28 years is not nearly enough time to be married to such a spectacular person such as Krissy. I want another 28! At least! And will work every day to be worthy of the days I get with her.

I hope wherever you are, you are having a tremendous Scalzi Anniversary Day.

  1. Snap! September 1994.

    I’d be eligible for parole by now, if it had been murder.

  2. Congrats to both of you. Having the right person by your side makes everything a little better.

  3. The proper answer to the “How long have you been married” question is, “Not long enough!” You two be blessed!

  4. From the viewpoint of 43-odd (some very odd) years together…heartfelt congratulations. If you’re lucky (we are), it only gets better. Mazel Tov!

  5. The guy and I will hit 33 years this October. My brother, on the other hand, is working towards his 7th marriage – LOL! I am sorry I didn’t warn some of his partners in advance. And for some, I’m not so sorry. But I digress. I don’t actually judge people who choose to divorce. I do think those of us married to people we truly admire and enjoy are especially lucky. Happy Anniversary and many more, John and Krissy!

  6. What did you expect when you married a fey? Congratulations on 28 years together!

  7. My future wife – whom I ‘d met at work and had a massive crush on but did not approach with romantic intentions until I’d moved onto a different company after completing my masters degree – had our official first date on our nation’s bicentennial July 4, 1976, consisting of a motorcycle ride out in the surrounding countryside and dinner at Arby’s. We cohabitated much against the Lord’s will (according to my mother) for a few years before tying the knot. That was 45 years ago and although I don’t personally agree with my mother about the existence of God and his son (God himself – weird), I thank the Jeebus every day for the wonderful life we’ve shared together.

    Congratulations to you and Krissy, Scalzi. I’m sure you’ll be together every bit as long and my wife and I.

  8. Congratulations! The two of you are perfectly suited, as are my husband and myself. I once gave him an anniversary card that said “We’re perfect for each other….(inside) no one else will have a thing to do with us.” After 25 years, that might be even more true!

  9. John – Happy Anniversary and congratulations. And thank you for sharing yourself and your family with us. We came for the books and stayed for the family.

  10. Congratulations Krissy and John!
    My wife and I have been married about as long as Teresa and Patrick.
    The “Official Hallmark-and-Jewelry-Sellers” lists of what you’re supposed to get for wedding presents stop telling you after about 20-25 years, except for big round numbers, or start naming random semi-precious stones, because by that time you really ought to know things the other person likes.

    Most of the last N years I’ve been making jewelry if the suggested stones are interesting or I find something cool at the shiny rock store. (Ammonites! Tektites!)
    But since the pandemic started, we haven’t been going to enough places fancy enough to wear earrings.

  11. Happy anniversary to you and Krissy, and best wishes for another 28, or more!

    (56 years is perfectly possible – my husband and I are coming up on our 57th anniversary in a couple of months.)

  12. Happy anniversary, you two! We made 18 years a week ago today. Contemplating where to go for our 20th: NZ and Japan are high on the short list. We did a river cruise from Prague to Berlin for our 10th.

  13. Joyful (if slightly belated) anniversary wishes to both of you, and may you enjoy many more years of health and happiness together!

    My spouse and I are coming up on our 43rd wedding anniversary in ten days, and I can truly say that there is nothing more wonderful than to be partnered with your best friend in the world.

    Mazel tov!

  14. Congrats and best wishes to you both, big happiness. Also, I hope your brain tastes as great as Krissy seems to believe it will. Unlikely, but then, isn’t all of this.
