Happy Area 51! An Anniversary Celebration.

We’ve heard a lot about Area 51 lately and other fictional rarities. My parents are celebrating their own, their 51st wedding anniversary!

Some years ago I was asking what the secret to their success was. Dad said the secret was mom “never forgot anything.”  Mom laughed out loud.

What I did NOT get were the clichés of never going to bed angry, that they just grew apart, or that the empty nest left them with nothing in common.  

So what did I takeaway from that?  Keep a sense of humor.  It was a big part of my life growing up. Laughing at yourself and others.

The cliché that did work and is still working, “laughter is the best medicine.”

Don’t get re-Married on the same day that you got Divorced.

Finding that one, true soulmate is magical. However, it does not mean you should immediately marry them.


Do not get married to your true love on the same day that you got divorced from the first mistake.  Just don’t. Yes it’s legal, assuming the divorce was done right. But, it makes your anniversary also your divorceaversary. While starting anew is a great thing. Starting anew a little bit slower is a better thing.

Matthew Thompson is a divorce lawyer and wants you to get re-married, but does not think you should do it on the same day that your divorce became final.

Happy Anniversary; The Secret to Happily Ever After!

Anniversary–  (noun) an·ni·ver·sa·ry; a date that is remembered or celebrated because a special or notable event occurred on that date in a previous year.

The critical part of that definition is a date that is remembered. The funny part is that it is NOT hard to remember, but it is EASY to forget.

There is no secret to achieving Happily Ever After, either, by the way.  It takes work, commitment, faith, stick-to-it-ness, and even some luck.

Matthew Thompson is a Divorce attorney and has practiced Family law for a decade and reminds you Don’t Forget Those Anniversaries.

Happy Anniversary!
