We dated for five months, were engaged for nearly 18 months, and were married for nine months when learned that baby number one was on the way. We were 22 years old. That same baby turned 21 this month, and son number two turns 20 this year. Jess and I have spent half of our lives raising these boys. Over the past couple of years as they have become more independent, even though they still live with us, Jess and I have been getting reacquainted in the best ways. We are not the same people we married and that’s as it should be. It’s been fun as well as challenging. Here is how we got here, and what we are doing now as nearly empty nesters.
