Couple celebrates 82 years of marriage

What is the secret to a long-lasting and successful relationship? Maybe we should turn to the experts on this one. This American couple celebrated their 82 year wedding anniversary, proving that love is not dead. And their secret? It’s much simpler than you might think.

103-year-old D.W and 100-year-old Willie from Charlotte, North Carolina are defying the odds. From both world wars, the Great Depression and the Civil Rights Era, they’ve seen the world through its many phases and changes. Yet here they are, still loving it up.

To honour and celebrate their love, granddaughter BJ Williams-Greene threw the centenarian couple a massive party. In addition, they each celebrated a birthday, making this party extra special.

“To see them at this age and still doing well, it’s just a blessing to have them here,” Williams-Greene told WSOC-TV.

So what’s the key to a strong relationship? How do they make it work this long?

“I don’t have no secret for that, just be nice to each other,” D.W. and Willie Williams agreed.

“It’s communication and loving each other and working together.” their granddaughter added. “They are each other’s best friend.”

This truly is a love for the ages.
