Nowadays, it’s unusual for married couples to be together for decades. When you ask these married couples who have been together for 50-60 years what their secret is, the answer is almost never the same.
We remember one couple telling us not to go to bed angry with each other, and it stuck with us.
Of course, the best advice for young marriages is to communicate and build trust.
But one North Carolina couple deserves all the praise and gratitude for celebrating 82 years of marriage.
In addition, the couple celebrated their 103rd and 100th birthdays, which were separated by seven days.
And their straightforward approach to having a long and happy marriage.
D.V. Williams, 103, and Willie Williams, 100, celebrated their birthdays and anniversaries in a Charlotte church while chanting with friends and family. They certainly deserved the celebration.
One couple discussed their long marriage, which spanned the Civil Rights Movement and the Great Depression, and revealed the secret to long-lasting love: compassion.
“Seeing them at this age and so well is still good; it’s just a blessing they’re still here,” their granddaughter BJ Williams-Green said.
The couple is now on the verge of becoming the world’s oldest married couple, according to the Guinness Book of Records.
Miyako Matsumoto, 100, and her 108-year-old husband Masau Matsumoto of Japan currently hold the record.
The Japanese couple attributes the woman’s patience to their long marriage.
D.V. and Willie, on the other hand, claimed that their success was due to no special secret; Willie Williams stated, “Just be kind to one another.”
We love getting news like this. Salutations to the happy and responsible couple.
What a victory for the good couple; it goes without saying that having a good heart is the key to living a long and happy life.
