Re: Wife joining husband in aikido class?

I have never had any problem with mature adult serious couples on the mat. I think 19 year old couples (like me) are terrible and not mature enough to handle situations like break ups and fights and, for me, there is nobody on earth I could love enough to spend THAT MUCH time with. But in my home dojo there is a wonderful couple who practice together. The wife, in fact, joined her husband about 3 or so years ago. They never bring their relationship into the dojo, and they really both love Aikido, not just because they practice together. They just tested together a few weeks ago. The wife went for her sankyu and the husband for his shodan. They were the only people testing as well. And if that's not cute enough, the husband gave her his old blue belt!!!!! I almost threw up a bit lol.
