My husband and I celebrated the wedding anniversaries of our folks in the weekend. My parents celebrated their 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary on Saturday and my husband’s parent’s celebrated on Sunday. Since all our siblings are in different parts of the world, we are unable to celebrate their anniversaries through a reunion or party. So, we decided to put together their wedding memories in a DVD and ask the grandkids to wish them and say something. The theme is ” I am happy that Grandma and Grandpa are married because…”. The other question is “I know that you love each other because…” It is wonderful to hear how the grandchildren perceive love. They were unanimous in saying that if it weren’t for their marriage, they would not exist. It seems they are oblivious that they can actually exist without their parents getting married. But, their line of thinking suggests that at their ages (2 years old to 19 years old), these grand kids have a secure feeling about marriage. Their grandparent’s marriages suggest to them staying married is possible. Another observation is these grandchildren witness how our parents are taking care of each other in sickness and long term illness. They see our parents beside each other. They remember when Grandpa will kneel down to put on the socks of Grandma who has back problems. They remember how Grandma will make sure that Grandpa will take all his medications. On the other side of the family, they remember their Grandparents taking care of them while they were young and have fond memories.
