Oh, just for the record, we're not married, we've been together for over 7 years though, and in this industry that's a long time! He actually started out flying A4's and A6's as a US Marine pilot, and came to the airline in 87, the year you ran into your friend.
My dad, and granddaddy both retired from the airlines, and my mom was employed for a few short years too, but that was way back during the war, and she quit to marry my dad when he got out of the service.
I once told my dad that back when I was little I used to love how he smelled when he got back from work, (but that I was over it at that point, the thrill of jet fuel smell was g-o-n-e ) and he got such a big smile on his face, and said he never knew I liked how he smelled. Oh, the things we should tell our loved ones that we don't think are important enough!
