The presidential couple celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary yesterday. And without getting into politics or anything else, it’s always comforting to me to see any couple in it for the long haul.
Whether it’s the President of the United States or someone I have never heard of, long-lasting love is terrific. In this age when more than half of American marriages end in divorce, a long-term commitment is a beautiful thing.
Some are upset that very little media attention, or even acknowledgement, was given to the Bush’s wedding anniversary. Scott Whitlock at newsbusters.org points out that ABC’s “Good Morning America” made no mention of the event. However the show “fawned over” John Edwards and his wife celebrating their 30th anniversary in July. I applaud both couples!
George and Laura Bush were married on November 5, 1977 in a morning wedding ceremony in the Glass Chapel of the First United Methodist Chruch in Midland, Texas. The couple had 75 guests and didn’t have any bridesmaids or groomsmen. A testament to the fact that you don’t need to have a lavish wedding to make it last!
