I Am Strange Because…

I confess. I am strange by today's standards. My wife and I did not sleep together until we were married. We had a normal sex life and produced five children. There would have been more if we hadn't decided to start using birth control after the fourth one. I am strange in that when I have looked at pretty girls in bikinis, I have taken out all of my desires on my wife. I have thought to myself that I'm glad my children don't run around almost naked in such bikinis. I am also strange in the fact that in all of our years of marriage, neither my wife nor I have cheated on our vows. I am also strange in that I am convinced that others would do well to copy what we have done. Do we have a normal sex life? Yes, as recently as this morning. Do we miss not having slept around? Not a bit. Will it last? Absolutely! It has for almost fifty-six years.
