crossing a threshold

Posted by david marsh on Mon 23 January 2012

On episode 73 of the talk show, Dan asked John if the time he'd been with his (current) wife was longer than the time before marrying her.

I thought I'd work out when that boundary crossing was for me and how old I will be when I cross that line with Sam:

  • My Birth: Thursday, March 11, 1976
  • Married: Saturday, April 19, 2003

Using the awesome wolfram alpha which makes this sort of calculation insanely easy:

  • Birth to Marriage (Thursday, March 11, 1976 to Saturday, April 19, 2003): 27 years, 1 month, 8 days
  • Marriage to Current (Saturday, April 19, 2003): 8 years, 9 months, 3 days

I'll will have been with Sam longer than being not-married on (Saturday, April 19, 2003 + 27 years 1 month 8 days): Monday, May 27, 2030.

I'll be (Thursday, March 11, 1976 to Monday, May 27, 2030): 54 years, 2 months, 16 days old.
