Do it like Dave & Margaretta

In 1959, young Air Force pilot David saw Margaretta across a crowded nightclub and begged his friend for an introduction. Forty years later, they've logged lots of travel time together, and their magic is still alive and well. When they heard about THE AMAZING RACE, they knew they'd make a great Team: David is adventurous and an eternal optimist; Margaretta hates to be left behind and enjoys keeping up with David.
My favorite TV show recently is The Amazing Race, a TV reality show about traveling and racing all around the world. The contestants should be a team of two people who have deep relationship. It's kinda fun to watch because we can learn about various tourism destination in the world. The last team arrived at the set destination by the show is eliminated. And last night, my favorite team, Dave and Margaretta, were eliminated because they picked up the wrong taxi.
What make Dave and Margaretta interesting to me was they are already old (unlike the other contestants who are still young and fresh)but still able to compete with them and they have been married for 40 years but still amazingly romantic couple. The other young couples seems to fight along the game and make each other upset. But Dave and Margaretta have set the example for younger couples how to work together as a team and absolute trust on our couple.
I just dream to have a marriage like Dave and Margaretta who have become grandparents already. Age is not determined by our physique but by our mind, Dave once said. Margeretta said that she wished her grandchildren would have the adventurous spirit like their grandparents. But despite 40 years of marriage, they are still love each other even more when they are young. They teach every viewers that ideal marriage is not an impossible thing for those who are willing to work for it. Relationship need to be worked. It doesn't come up to you miracullously.
