Somewhere on the internet (or a message forward) there was a quote - ‘It’s good to be his first love, but it’s perfect to be his last’. Guess what, it can’t be truer. What’s the point in being someone’s memory when you can both create fabulous, awesome memories together? There are too many perks of growing old together, these are just a few…
1. Watching nature unfold
From the hot tempered and young to the wise and old, it’s a noble feeling to watch those wrinkles and lines form close at hand. A testimony to the fact that your love was indeed not about the looks.
2. Being a grandparent
Having kids is good, but grandkids – that’s totally something else. It’s like reliving parenthood but even cooler.
3. Nothing matters
