    In a few months I'll be celebrating 30 years of marriage...ok...hopefully not by myself. I should have written "we." "I'll be celebrating" makes it seem like my wife probably left me a few years ago and I just haven't come to terms with it yet. But that's not the case! Apologies for the bad start.

    I don't know how covidy the summer is going to be or whether we'll be able to travel, so I'm looking for creative ideas on how to make this anniversary memorable. I welcome your thoughts.

    Get a divorce. Enjoyable? No. Memorable? Probably.

    If we were going to get divorced it probably would have already happened. The main pathway for divorce still left for us is that we become empty-nesters and then discover that we no longer have anything in common, or never did to begin with. The "30 Years is Long Enough, I'm Ready for a New Chapter!" divorce would be kind of cool though. Let me think about it for a while. Is it ok if I tell her it was your idea?

    She has social media and has declined previous suggestions that she register for the JCC. We discuss politics and covid and gun control over breakfast instead. Many decades ago I chose the path of the JCC, and she chose the path of "career success."

    There are lots of unspoiled rural places in France. Maybe an anniversary vacation if feasible.

    We did all that in our 30s when we had youthful vigor and sex drives. The best advice I can give you younger folks about the swinging lifestyle is to experiment with it before social media is invented.

    You could draw a picture in MS paint and ask her to describe it.

    Brace yourself for betrayal of trust. She decided to become a lesbian.

    As if it were a choice, shame on you! It's never too late for coming out, and I completely support her with all my love and respect.

    Move to her home country for a fresh new start. Then you'll be able to enjoy the kangaroos in your back yard, people throwing boomerangs, kookaburras on toast, great views from your porch of Sydney Harbour....

    Oh wait.

    You can have all of Australia in Austria. E.g. the Sydney opera house in Minimundus, kangaroos, boomerangs or even Australian pubs. (if not closed due to covid)

    https://www.billabong.at/


    ....or even Australian songs:
    Once a jolly maskman camped on a Billa bank,
    [​IMG]
    Under the shade of a Kuhweiden tree,
    [​IMG]
    And he sang as he watched and waited for his farmer girl,
    "You'll come and dance a Wiener Walzer with me."

    Minimundus is possibly the greatest tourist trap in all of Europe.
