Today is my (step)mom and dad's 41st wedding anniversary. Yes, they really did get married six days after my birthday, the year I turned seven. I have no idea what they were thinking, getting married so close to JayCon.

Later that year, in second grade at Morrison Academy, a Baptist missionary school in downisland Taiwan, I was sent home with a note telling my parents to punish me for lying as I'd written a little essay about being at their wedding. Ah, the good old days.

We were all young and beautiful once, weren't we?

Happy anniversary, Mom and Dad.

I got the 'she must be lying' over the very same thing.

I thinkt he divorce rate in Taiwan must still be quite low - I can't think of anyone I know there who's been divorced (I lived in Taipei 2007-2010).

Though I did find this article that claims the rate has been rising just recently.
