35 Years Strong: A Journey Through Love, Challenges, and Growth in Marriage

By Kimberley Borgens

We saw a Poll that asked “How open are you to couples therapy?”

A – It’s 100% necessary.

B – Haven’t done it, but open to it.

C – Very skeptical about it.

D – It’s not for me.

Wife: So which would you choose?

Husband: I’m open to it!

Wife: For real? Because you weren’t so open to it before. You said there is nothing wrong with me, why are we here? (1996 we went to two couples therapy sessions. The time in our relationship when the “D” word came up several times.)

Husband: I don’t remember that.

Wife: I remember you felt like it was a waste of time. So, at that time you were not open to it.

We have done a lot of personal development since then.

Husband: Yes we have. And I am open to it.

Wife: Good to know that you are now open to it. I’ll let you know if we need it.

We have now been together for 35 years. And there was one period when I think neither of us thought we were going to make it together. And yet here we are killin it! Okay maybe not always killin it but committed none the less. Still working on things that come up with two strong, independent, opinionated and creative people sure makes us never boring as a couple.

🎉We are thinking of doing some Live Husband/Wife Conversations in February.

Our Poll: Answer with a K, L, M, or N 😁

K – Would you want to attend?

L – Would you invite a friend or significant other to watch too?

M – Would you submit a question for us to answer?

N – Would you skip it?

Let us know.


😍Look at these two stylish young adults 35 years ago.

Him with his “skinny tie”, polo jacket, fanny pack, and skinny beard.

Her with feathered hair and rousing dress with very littl make up.

This photo was taken when we went to a wedding at a casino hotel in Reno, NV. We had only been dating less than two months. Still one of my favorite photos.
