How did you two meet? Tell us your story.
We met at a mutual friend’s home. We started dating after she turned 18 years old. Five months later we were married and have been for 52 years.
What’s the secret to a long lasting marriage?
He wins all the arguments (in his mind) but we don’t argue very much. We try to resolve our issues as soon as possible and before we go to bed. When I prove him wrong, he acknowledges in his own way. It is important to do things together, like going out of town for a weekend or go on short day trips to establish memories as well.
What is your favorite memory together?
Buying our first house together and, of course, having our children.
What do you love most about each other?
We both share each other’s interests and we have both learned to respect each other’s wishes and needs.
