this is my story too
9 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I too am one of those to whom God gave a second chance to marry my high school love. It took Julie and Steve 28 years. It took me 38 years, but I am a slow learner in all of life's most important lessons. We parted when we were both 18, and then were married by my brother when we were both 55. We are now age 70, and thank God every day that we have the chance to grow old together. Ironically, my eldest son is the only one of our children (three each0 that supports us now. And this child truly considers my wife as his mother in every way except by birth, and he is so very much like Scott Adams. My wife cannot view this movie with me. It hits too close to home for her. I just sit there and sob all the way through it. I've seen the movie 6 times, and I cried just as hard the 6th time as I did the first time. But it is a good cry. A catharsis. I can't tell you how grateful I am to all those who made this movie. It told the world that there is always hope. It is never too late.
