Forty-four years ago I restarted college afte a disasterous first attempt. My mother, whose college desires had been frustrated by the depression decided to enroll too. We ended up sharing one class where the instructor read our names the first day and commented "Oh, how nice, a husband a wife." After much laughter, a very rewarding experience followed for all.
