In March of this year, Willie and D.W. Williams from North Carolina celebrated their 82nd anniversary.
D.W. is 103-years-old while his wife, Willie, is 100-years-old.
In addition, they celebrated their birthdays which are a week apart, the lucky ducks.
The event was celebrated at First Mayfield Memorial Baptist in Charlotte, North Carolina as their granddaughter, Williams-Greene, wanted to honor their love, saying: “to see them at this age and still doing well, it’s just a blessing to have them here.” She added how they are still each other’s “best friend.”
The couple revealed how when they met, cab rides were only 10 cents, and while much has changed in almost 100 years, their love for each other remains the same.
The two were married when Willie was 18 and DW around 21 — living through the Great Depression, the Vietnam War, the Korean War as well as the Civil Rights era — a feat most cannot say they have experienced.
When asked about the secret to their long lasting marriage, they responded with: “..just be kind to each other.”
Williams-Greene shares how her grandparents inspire her when it comes to long-lasting relationships.
She said that it’s “communication and loving each other and working together.”
And when asked what they would do with additional 100 years of marriage, they responded: “I don’t know, sit around the house.”
Sounds like heaven if you ask me.
