What Marriage Is Really Like After 23 Years

Mayzer & Peter celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary a few weeks ago and when I asked them “how does 23 years feel like?!” They both looked at each other and responded, “it went by too quick!” Aww what a great reminder that time flies when you’re in love. What a beautiful couple! May God bless you both always and Thank you for letting me capture your special day.

    My gosh! 23 years is a long time. It’s difficult to see marriages that last so long these days. Wish them many more years.

    That’s honestly the sweetest answer ever! I was expecting the usual “it’s quite rough!” or “marriage is far from easy!” reply, but this is so much better ☺️

    It’s nice to see the couple truly united in love. I’ve also taken away their truth. “A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.” I’ll keep that in mind.

    I am so happy to read about couples that keep the flame alive even after decades of marriage. My mom and dad were married for 29 years before my dad passed away. I am hoping that me and my husband would stay together forever! Our dream is to grow old together, with our very own “his” and “hers” walking sticks, sitting side by side on the beach watching sunsets.

    Oh wow, 23 years!!! Congratulations. You are doing well. Hopefully I’ll make it that far. We’re on about 16 so far and going strong. You both look very happy.
