Starting Year Fifteen

“What’s that?” you say. Schlock Mercenary is only starting year eight!

True. But today Sandra and I celebrate the fourteenth anniversary of our wedding, and kick off year fifteen.

Sandra dealt out enough mushy stuff for both of us, so I’m just going to link to her post. She said it better than I can.

When I started this comic project in March of 2000 (three full months before posting anything online) we had been married for about seven years and seven months.

With Schlock now two months into year eight, I think that sometime soon we will have spent half of our married life as the proud parents of a comic-strip universe. Oh, how the time flies.

(Note: we are also the proud parents of four actual CHILDREN. I spent a good chunk of this afternoon snuggling them on the couch while watching an Animaniacs DVD.)

Here’s to another fifteen years. Or fifteen million.

  1. Please accept the most heartfelt congratulations to both you and Sandra! And to the kids, who had the good sense to wind up with the two of you as parents. Best wishes for many, many more such anniversaries.

  2. Congratulations!!! Living proof that marriage isn’t the dead institution that some claim. I’m gearing up for year 14 in January myself.

  3. The kids we always planned on having. The comic-strip universe was something of a surprise. At least I didn’t have to do the birthing for that one. I’m not going to complain. There aren’t many children who start supporting their parents at the tender age of 6.

  4. Congratulations! My Husband and I just had our seventh. We’ve got 33 more to go before we decide if this marriage thing is going to work for us or not.

  5. Hi Howard,

    Well done to you both, I know you and Sandra will be celebrating 50 years before you know it.

    Christine and I are into our 30th year and still as much in love as year 1.

    All the best

  6. Hey, Howard. It’s Randy (from S*P). First off, congrats on both anniversaries. Second, I need to talk to you soon – so please be expectin’ an email.

    Hope all is well.
