You may be happily coupled-up but can still live vicariously through her dating disasters.

She watched you fall off of a horse and was there to help you get back up. She will travel the globe and come to your wedding decades later. And no matter how much you have changed and how far you've come in life, she will still call you out for the candy you didn't share 20 years ago.
