On this day, February 23rd 35 years ago, Marge Bouvier and Homer Simpson got married!
Marge: Maybe our next anniversary will be romantic. Aww, look, Homey, our wedding cake!
Homer: You mean there’s been cake in our freezer for eleven years? Why was I not informed?
If the Simpsons didn’t exist on a floating timeline (so characters don’t age, basically) then it would be their 35th Wedding Anniversary after being married on February 23rd in 1982. That’s impressive! I’ll have whatever anti-aging products their using …
We first get a glimpse into the relationship of Homer and Marge before marriage in the episode “I Married Marge” which is episode 12 of season 3.
Season 3 is probably my favourite Simpsons Season due to many of my favourite episodes featuring in this season and this episode is no different. It’s got jokes, heart, flashbacks and quotable dialogue all packed into a really sweet episode.
(Seriously, if you haven’t watched it then 1) *rolls eyes* and … 2) watch it! You have to today because of their anniversary)
To sum up this great episode here is the SimpsonsWikia synopsis:
“In flashback, the year is 1980, and Homer andMarge are dating. After seeing a Star Warsmovie, they get busy afterwards – and Marge finds out she is pregnant with Bart. When Homer finds out, he proposes to her, and then tries to find a higher paying job. He goes to the new power plant, only to be rejected. When the baby’s things are repossessed, Homer decides they’ll be better off without him – until Marge comes to find him.”
This episode teachers that nothing can stand in the way of love. The love that Homer and Marge portray is so sweet, you can’t help but love the animated couple.
Let’s face it … Homer can be a jerk. Although beer and other stuff persuades him, he often finds himself back with Marge and no matter what stupid things they do against each other, nothing can stop their love ❤. Marge see’s behind his silliness and flabs and see’s the fatherly love that has developed in him.
(I better stop now before I start tearing up 😁 …)
