    Now I/we know how long Earl and Opal’ve been married: half a century. Which means they’re in the 70s if they got married in their 20s.

    You can’t just assume they were married in their twenties. For all we know, they were part of an arranged child marriage and didn’t even meet face-to-face until they’d already been husband and wife for ten years.

    He said “if” they got married in their 20s. And what country are you from that arranges marriages and then they don’t meet until they’ve been married 10 years? Outer Elbonia?

    Even if they had marriage arranged when they were still children, they would still have married when they were of age, isn’t it so? Alternately, I have heard of child marriages where it really means that a rich family wants a cheap maid for their young son – in that case, the girl would naturally meet the boy whose messes she needs to clean up.

    Memory and knowledge are two different things.

    @clayusmcret -
    Wisdom and knowledge are two different things, too…
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is knowing it that you don’t put it in fruit salad.

    Well, if you put tomato in a salad, isn’t that automatically a ‘fruit’ salad?

    Not Outer Elbonia, Lower Elbonia, where the mud is even deeper.
    .
    Besides, they COULD have mated in their late teens or even late forties.

    Do you know your SSN? better yet do you know the last 4 digits without having to silently recite it until you get to them?

    As Aunty Acid said, they’ve been married so long, they often finish each other’s sentences – usually with “Oh, shut up!”
