We exchanged emails with the couples we had been eating breakfast with that morning, and told them about travelpod as well. It had me thinking, if they would feel offended about some of our comments on some of the passengers aboard this ship. I really hope they won't, because they sort of brought it on themselves when they asked us why we would go on a cruise like this, when it is nothing but "old" people. At first when they sat down, they thought we were some of the dancers, usually we just get asked if we work onboard!
Another couple we met, shared their stories as well. Their secret was to keep being eachothers best friends; for better or for worse. Apparently that works really well for them, since they had been together for almost 40 years!And it makes perfectly sense. Imagine living with someone you cannot get along with! Not exactly the perfect way of spending most of your life, is it?!
I have discovered a pattern, though, throughout all these conversations. The wife always tells how wonderful, but hard their lifelong marriage has been, while the husband just nods along, and then finally adds: "There has been a lot of compromising too!"!
