Longest Married Couple Shares Advice.

If you and your partner have been together for a while, you may be concerned about how to keep that spark of romance alive. And while there’s no shortage of books, magazines, and TV shows claiming to have the answers, espousing everything from tango classes to regular therapy sessions, we’d prefer to take our relationship advice from people who know what they’re talking about.

In 2008, they received a Guinness Record for being the world’s longest-married living couple. Today, they’re still going strong, even at the ripe old ages of 104 (Herbert) and 102 (Zelmyra).

Zelmyra still remembers what Herbert was like when she first married him. “He was not mean; he was not a fighter,” she told the New Bern Sun Journal. “He was quiet and kind. He was not much to look at but he was sweet.” Click Here to Read More..
