What’s the most time you’ve ever spent apart from your favorite person? Tell us about it.
My Favorite person is my husband of fifty-six years
The longest time we have been apart was when I had my five children in the 1960s.
Two daughters and three sons. Below are the month and year that I have been separated from my favorite person – my husband.
July 1961 Two weeks
December 1963 Two weeks
December 1964 Two weeks
August 1967 Two weeks
April 1969 Two weeks
That’s ten weeks of our marriage I never slept with him, that’s pretty good for fifty-six years of marriage.
He never spent much time in the maturity home with me after our first one was born, he was a farmer, looked after the babies himself while I was giving birth to our children.
In those days we were never allowed out of the hospital after having a baby very early I think that was a good thing I had time to bond with the baby before I when home to milk cows and look after my babies.
My husband, John was a wonderful father, you can see by this photo how proud he was of his two daughters.
