Congratulations! My husband was in his late 40's (and me, late 30's) when we met and got hitched. Good things DO come to those who wait. Plus when you couple up later in life there are no illusions of "training" up your partner, or fixing them - you know it's a WYSIWYG situation.

I wish you many, many years of love and happiness.

We've been dating for several years and have been living together full time for almost a year now, and I popped the question a couple months ago. It was one of the most beautiful, joyous moments of my life.

For many years, I wondered and worried if I'd ever find that special someone. And I have to admit that, once I crossed the 40-year mark and the years continued to pass, I was starting to lose hope. But I suppose in my case, that old saying really was true... all good things to those who wait.
Good on both of you!!!! Congrats

Well, that certainly is the best news I've heard all day, and I don't even know you. Congratulations and wishing you and the future Mrs. "Sojournor" a very happy life together.
