I’m a sap! That got me! My grandparents celebrated 61 this year, the other set had been married 62 when he passed away.

So inspirational!

Great story thanks for sharing !!

I am over 50, and like many of my friends have Parents still alive well into their 70s, 80s, and 90s.  Can’t specifically say that anyone in our group has a relative that has been married 80 or more years… but there are a lot of Moms & Dads who are in the 60 to 70 years marriage.

Mind boggling indeed !!

And you are right, they’ve all seen a ton of life (heck I think I’ve seen a ton of life at my age)… but to think that when my Dad was a kid they didn’t even have telephones in their houses (that came to most homes in Canada during the 1940s and 50s)… and today he wanders around the world on his travels with cell-phone in hand, so that I never am quite sure where he’ll call me from next.

Talk about space age changes !!
