10 Signs You’re an “Old Married Couple”

When I think of the term “old married couple” I envision a grandparent-aged couple who have been together for longer than I’ve been alive. They are cute and romantic, yet seem to have their own quirks about them.

I want to be that couple when I get older — I have been married for 9 years now and while in the long scheme of life, that’s not a long time — our marriage has lasted longer than couples we know in the same age. It’s been work, it still is, but one day I hope we can look back and consider ourselves the 30-year married, adorable, old couple.

While we have a long way to go until that, I still think we act like an old married couple. I don’t think it’s totally a bad thing, but the signs are so there.
