18 years after marriage, Mike Vogel still feels honored to walk down the aisle with his wife.
He related the number 18 with various things from across the globe, writing, “18 is a lot of things…It is the number of holes in a full round of golf.”
“In Hebrew, 18 means ‘chai’ or ‘Alive’. Literally, it means life. If you look at your right hand, the creases in your hand form the Arabic number ’18’ (look it up. It’s crazy)…18 is also the age at which most enter adulthood.”
The American actor and former model, Mike further shared that his wife was 18-year-old when he took wedding vows with her.
“She loves Alf reruns and vegetables. I love Hogan’s Heroes reruns and steak. She LOVES the beach. I LOVE the mountains,” he added. “But we LOVE each other.”
Half of her age into the marriage, he felt amazing and blessed to have spent the days of his life with her. To finish off the post, he called her his “chai,” and “life,” saying he cherished and loved her.
Gentleman Husband: Both in Real Life and Series ‘Sex/Life’

No wonder you play “Cooper” with so many true emotion in it. Marriage needs 2 people holding in balance.
