Uncle Si is a persistent man. The word “no” really isn’t the end for him, and the person who knows that the best is his wife, Christine.
I guess you could say getting married was an argument. And Si Robertson knows arguments happen in a marriage.
“What I tell young couples that are getting married is: You’re going to have quarrels, and on some things, you’re just going to have to agree to disagree,” he said.
Yes, within marriage disagreements happen. But what about the act of getting married?
Si and Christine have been married since 1971, but it was a bumpy ride getting to that point. According to Looper, Si proposed to her over 70 times before she said yes. In today’s world, a guy could face a restraining order for bugging a girl that much. And after that many rejections, any other man would’ve given up or gotten furious. But Si knows better.
“Don’t get mad and fly off the handle, OK. We’re all human, and we make mistakes,” he said.

So it’s persistence — that’s the key to success. Whether it’s starting a multi-million dollar duck call business or going after the love of your life, you need persistence. All good things come to those who wait, right?
Is there something you want that has evaded you? What or who has rejected you, and can you go after it/them again?
