Derek and I have been married for 9 years. Sometimes it just doesn't seem that long. Then I think, "wait, I have a 7 yr old. I better have been married for 9 years!" These 9 years have been great. We hardly ever argue with each other, we enjoy each other's company, we agree on most things, and only tease each other a little bit. We seem to have been designed for each other. Okay, that's enough sappiness.
