26. OK, I have you all beat.
I divorced my first husband in 1975. He was a drunk and used to beat me. I married my second (and current) husband in 1999. He's the great love of my life and treats me like a queen. My mother calls him by my FIRST husband's name. All the time. But that's not the best story.

Two years ago, at age 53, I had open heart surgery. My mother came to visit when I got home from the hospital. I had spent 3 weeks in the hospital and had been home cooped up in the house for a week and was really going stir crazy. My husband wanted to take me to the Sonic for a cherry limeade. My MOTHER told him I could not go, because his car rode too rough for me to ride in! I was so mad, and my husband was terrified I would get stressed and have a heart attack. I tried to get her to leave (she lives in another town) but she wouldn't go. So my husband told her she HAD to leave. I will always love him for that, and she will never get over it. She has not stayed overnight in my home since.
