Interesting. My father gave my mother a kidney in March and he had a similar attitude--he didn't really see it as a sacrifice because he gets to keep his wife, she gets an improved quality of life and they get (hopefully) many more years together. He was 71 when he donated, so he had to get all kinds of special permission to do it.

My parents always assumed that they would match too, and they did...but I've been reading that the chances of that are actually something like1/30,000. They matched on 4/5 markers.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

Rather than Valentine's Day ours was the day before Halloween. We saw this and laughed that rather than a love story maybe we are more of a Frankenstein story!

Thank you for sharing this unselfish story. I hate it but the first thing that came to my was what if he now leaves. You know like women who put their husbands through school. After he complete his study he gets himself a women with an education more similar to his or a younger woman. I do hope that does not happen. And I am sorry for having this thought.
