Lovely. Britain's longest married couple celebrated their 80th (!!!!) anniversary today. After their wedding, they went out to see a Charlie Chaplin film!
Frank Milford, 100, and Anita Milford, 99, will celebrate by spending a quiet weekend together - like most of their days.
“At our age that’s all you need,” said Mr Milford. “Just us together, no big fuss.
. . .the secret to a successful marriage? Share a little kiss and cuddle every night before bed.
“It’s our golden rule,” Mrs Milford said. “Couples these days don’t last long because they often don’t take enough time for each other. There just isn’t enough respect - love is about give and take. Our advice to young couples would be to make time for a little romance every day.”
Mr Milford added: “To win over your sweetheart you need a dose of old fashioned chivalry and don’t let your standards slip. We do everything together even after nearly 80 years.”
And I thought my grandparents were remarkable for their 67 years together. Any one else know a couple who has been married 60 years or more?
