New Beginnings

If one is lucky, after great sorrow comes great joy. Joannne and Peter each lost a spouse after a very long successful marriage. This fine couple now have found one another and have decided to begin another relationship--in Joanne's words, "another chance at life and love." Today Joanne sent me this photo and announced their engagement. Celebrate new beginnings!

  2. They look so right together. I have a theory about second marriages and it's that when both partners come from previous happy relationships, then it works. This one will work, I'm sure.

  12. Greetings from Finland with best wishes to the happy looking couple.
    As young married suits biologically - best genes for children- as older we are looking at a partner, who has a same kind characters, or at least people are saying here so :)
    Anyhow, much, much happiness to them!

  15. Is love the same one at twenty or at fity years old, I wonder ? I can imagine this couple will be happy if it manages to find points of agreement. For the gentleman already moving at the lady will undoubtedly not be so easy.
    And the problems from the children ? Even if they are adults and have their own family, children often would believe that the survivor will be ever faithful to the person who disappeared...
