I've been with my wife since 1978

Remember that? I do
We were married in 1981 and we have 3 kids who are adults now.My wife is not a Dead fan,nor are two of my three kids (so life isn't always perfect).I love all of them and the feeling is very mutual.

Since 1990

Wrote my first love poem to my then friend and gave it to her at the Weir/Wasserman show at Darien Lake summer of '91. She liked my bus and my words... We dated for four years and saw several Dead shows together in that time. Separated in July of '95...she was the one to call though and tell me Jerry had passed as I was slumming on Chappaquiddick and had little access to the media unless I was in town. Reunited in '96, split again in '98, reunited later in '98, made a baby, got married, now have kid two, Volks Bus #4 and still listen to the Dead regularly. My 8 year old told me the other day she wants to get me tix to a Grateful Dead show for father's day...insert tears here...I explained to her the situation and we agreed to see Phil when next he comes around. She can recognize Jerry's guitar from a host of other instruments in a heart beat... Two cats-Bean and Bella and one Shepard-Nesta...

20 plus years of marital ... marital? Hmmmm ... harmony. Dos daughters - one's like I am - poor thing. Both, however, have impeccaple taste in music. Peaches, the pug - a.k.a. varmant. Two red-eared turtles. Hamster Teddy and black-googley-eyed goldfish Mammy. Eso es.

You get so far away from how it feels inside,
You can't let go, 'cause you're afraid to fall,
But the day may come when you can't feel at all."

Married by the State

Well I never thought it would happen, but I have been married for about 3 years now with a 1.5 year old daughter who was actually born on Christmas morning! We had a big dinner on Christmas Eve and had friends over and in turn drank a lot of wine etc. My wife went into labor about 4 am as I had my Dead DVD up very loud. I actually drove to the hospital with one hand over one eye and my blinkers on while beeping the horn! This is actually normal in China and even after drinking a 12 pack one can still drive better than the locals! Ha ha.

Anyway, we live in Century Park in Pudong Shanghai, China and actually had part one of our marriage in a government building under a giant emblem of the Communist Party. Part two of our marriage was actually at the Shangri la Hotel in Shanghai. Since my wife does not belong to any religion (formally) we did not get married in the Church. This is China of course and religions are officially not allowed in a communist state. Its strange to even use the word communism when speaking of China these days as in some aspects the market is even more wide open than the States. (This could be a good thing and a bad thing depending on what part of the economy you are actually analyzing).

My wife is Chinese and lived in England during her masters’ degree at the University of Liverpool. She never heard of the Grateful Dead before and when we first met I used to listen to the music in the car etc. and asked her what she thought the band looked like etc. She thought they were a thrash band who wore make up and shit like that. Since I have bought some GD DVD's (here in China on the black market) she was surprised to see who they are. My Chinese mother in law calls Jerry the old teddy bear! Really. They actually like the music and my daughter actually spins when I play the Dead. Adriana Maria is my daughters name and when I am playing GD or Phish she really pays close attention and really gets it. When she was very little a few months or so we used to pay Symphony and Classical Jazz for her all the time.

Anyway that that we are and it is nice to hear all the good stories out there. If any of you decide on a visit to China let me know.
