Let me ask you, what was the morning of your wedding like? Do you remember everything you did? Probably not! It was probably a big exciting blur, right?
Well, Andrew “Hammo” Hamilton remembers exactly what he did the morning of his wedding. His was a 10 am ceremony. So at 8:30 am he woke up, went out to get the paper, sat and read it and then got dressed. 30 years later he still remembers the paper’s Quote of the Day. It read: Marriage is an adventure. It is like going to war.
“Fancy reading that an hour and a half before you got married. Well, I’ve got good news, marriage is a wonderful adventure.”
For the first time ever, Hammo and his wife went on holiday without their kids. Usually, Hammo is planning family activities, that they can all do together. Now that they were kid-free he was thinking “how is this going to work, I wonder if she still wants me…”
But Hammo is happy to report that it was a great holiday. He admits they shared a laugh together about halfway through because they realised “we still do like each other”.
When thinking about how they have managed to make it work for 30 years, Hammo remembers a bible verse they read at their wedding.
