An elderly couple in Michigan, US, recently celebrated their 80th marriage anniversary and shared secrets to their long and happy marriage.
Donald and Vivian Hart are both 99 years old, ABC News reports. They got married all the way back in the 1930s in what they described as a "small wedding."
Since then, their love has blossomed through thick and thin. Friends and family, including their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, gathered to celebrate with them.
Donald and Vivian's great-granddaughter, 28-year-old Andi Ripley, said they have made their family really special over the years:
My grandma always says ‘This is a little piece of heaven’ every time the family is together.
The couple spent some time going through their family albums, Briefly.co.za gathered. A picture of them posing together in their younger years stood out.
Donald shared several tips to a healthy marriage, including putting God first, praying together, and always having a willingness to help. He added:
Make sure the relationship is honest. Try to do what's right in God's eyes. It's good to laugh together. Have fun with each other, but don't make jokes at the expense of the other.
