Enjoy People | Married for A Long Time

"here’s no secret to our marriage, 
we just did what was needed for each other and our family."
mr. + mrs. fisher
Zelmyra, oh-so-lovely in pink, is 101 years old and Herbert, quite stylin' himself, is 104 and they have been married for almost 86 years. For atey sicks years.

I'm very aware of "marriage advice" these days.  Don't we all want to be Zelmyra and Herbert? I read this sweet article about them and just had to share.  This has to make you smile.

Is there anything you would do differently after more than 80 years of marriage?
We wouldn’t change a thing. There’s no secret to our marriage, we just did what was needed for each other and our family.

You got married very young – how did u both manage to grow as individuals yet not grow apart as a couple?
“Everyone who plants a seed and harvests the crop celebrates together.” We are individuals, but accomplish more together.

Does communicating get easier with time? 
The children are grown, so we talk more now. We can enjoy our time on the porch or our rocking chairs – together.

At the end of bad relationship day, what is the most important thing to remind yourselves?
Remember marriage is not a contest – never keep a score. God has put the two of you together on the same team to win.

I love their theme of "together."  Enjoy together. Celebrate together. Take care of your family together.  Rock on your porch together.
