British Couple Truly Believes ‘Till Death Do Us Part’, Still Married After 70 Years

Life is full of ups and downs, and the same is said about the institution of marriage. Some last for 72 days, while others last for years and years.

Could you imagine being born in the same hospital, being friends from birth, posing together in wedding outfits just for fun at the age of 4, marrying at 21, and now celebrating your platinum anniversary?

That’s right folks, platinum means 70 years of marriage and British couple Ron and Eileen Everest, 92 and 91 respectively, are still happily married 91 years after their first meeting.

And just like any other couple out there, humor seems to have kept their marriage going strong even through the ups and downs. When asked the secret to their long marriage, Ron said “we promised to love, honor and obey – and I did all the obeying.”

We’d say that’s a smart man.  Congrats to the happy couple and here’s to many more years!

    That's awesome! My parents just celebrated their 42nd. I guess we're the few lucky who grew up with both parents in the home. Cheers.
