80 Years of Marriage

Look at this lovely couple getting married in London in 1934. Such a gorgeous dress! And the groom’s stylish mustache belies the fact that he was only 22 years old. That was 80 years ago, and they haven’t changed all much. Yes, Maurice and Helen Kaye are still alive and still married. He is 102 and just recently gave up driving. She just turned 101 and looks decades younger.

If what they have could be bottled, they would make a fortune. Apart from the odd ache and pain, they are in good health, presiding over a family that loves them. They talk about their son, their daughter (and each of their spouses), their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren with the pride of people who know how lucky they are. Although luck hasn’t always been with them.

Together they survived World War II, in which their house was destroyed by bombs, bore four children, of which two now survive, and built a chain of clothing stores. You can read their story at The Guardian.  -via Buzzfeed
