2020 is here at last. The first big event of the year is just around the corner, and that is Monday, January 6th. That day marks the 20th anniversary together for Hal (person) and I. It has been a long, strange trip together but I wouldn’t change anything because all of the events and details are what make us what we are today. We have missed opportunities at time through the years, but the good far outweighs the bad.
I don’t know how much either Hal or I believed that we would still be together after 20 years. Friends have told us that we have lasted together longer than most straight married couples. I suppose that is a really high compliment, even though it does seem like an indictment on marriage as an institution. Perhaps that is why we have never married, even after the option became available to us.
