81 Years Married!Couple To Enter British History Books

 

Updated : May 27, 2009

The longest living married couple in Britain have celebrated their 81st wedding anniversary and look set to become the longest married couple in British History.

Frank and Anita Milford Devon, exchanged vows on 26 May, 1928, reports the BBC.
Frank is 101 and Anita will be 101 next month. In February they will become the longest married couple in British history.

The couple, who live in a nursing home in Plymouth, say they still have little arguments, but will always have a kiss and cuddle before they go to bed.

The pair, who said there was no "magic secret" to a happy marriage, met at a YMCA dance in the St Budeaux area of Plymouth in 1926 and were married two years later at Torpoint register office.

Mr Milford worked at Devonport dockyard until his retirement at the age of 60.
They have two children, five grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.

Their 74-year-old son, also called Frank, said the main secret of his parents' wedded bliss was simply being happy with each other.

"They've enjoyed themselves, enjoyed their lives very much but they've been always very content with their lot," he said.

VeryHappyPig shimmers at the thought of being married to Mrs VeryHappyPig that long!
