Practical Addvice From A Couple Married 70 years

This is such a cute couple, and it is obvious that after nearly 70 years of marriage, they are still very much in love. They are quick to point out that they always have and still do find each other physically attractive, but that there is much more to having a solid foundation than that. I hope to have a love with such strong roots it endures like theirs has.

Some of the practical advice I found noteworthy:

"Nothing can be always smooth, otherwise it's boring...You have to be tolerant to make [marriage] work..."

"It todays world you get a divorce if everything isn't comfy cozy. You have to be liberal with your love if you want it to last. Nothing is perfect. We struggled...but it was a very loving time, even though it was a tough time. You know the person so well. You know the good, the bad, and the in between..."
