Best Dozen Years of our Lives!
« on: September 19, 2015, 04:04:15 AM »
September has come around again and now we have been married for a dozen years.

We both regard the last 12 years as the best of our lives.

How time flies!  Our girls cannot wait to be teenagers.  Crushes on One Direction - Yikes!

We look forward to our future together...

Yes well done!! Good on you. I usually think most Turkish guys walk about scratching their balls all day whilst watching Russian women and telling stories about being International business men when actually they just sell 2 pairs of socks a months to a street person in the FSU  :)
But some guys are ok , even have a few Turkish friends  :)

Great 12 years really:
All the best to Leslied and family yesterday.
All the best to Richard and Valya, who we celebrated with in Tver, Russia 12 years ago today.
While here at home Friday will be our own 12 year mark too!

It is interesting that at least 3 of the couples who married just days apart 12 years ago are still together.  Seems September is still a great time of year for those of us who did this our way back a dozen years ago.  All the best here for one and all of those who married in 2003!

Thanks everyone for all the kind words  tiphat

For those members who have not been around for as long as we have.  We are British but live full time on the Turkish Riviera by choice.

To our friends who married as we did in September 2003.  I hope you have enjoyed life as much as we have in the last dozen years  :thumbsup:

It does not seem so long ago that we were all newbies searching for the right FSU woman.  We used very different methods and we all succeeded!  There is a fiction that this quest was easier back then but IMHO it is down to the attitudes and approach of the guys who were searching.  Sensible, sincere people make lasting relationships.
