I can't imagine doing anything for 40 years (mostly because I'm only 35), but that's how long my parents have been married. Since then they've spawned three children who have so far spawned four more. These two people are now responsible for another SEVEN plus themselves. You want to know why we have a general over population issue? Talk to them.
Other things which have happened since these two got hitched:
- Assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.
- Man lands on the moon.
- The premiere of the Muppet Show.
- Studio 54 opens and closes.
- The Vietnam, and Cold Wars both end.
- The Iraq war begins.
- Cassette tapes.
- Compact discs.
