As some people complain about how marriage destroyed them, some cannot help but bask in the glory of eternal companionship.
Samwiri Bishaka, a 104-year-old man who has everything to thank God for, celebrated 66 years of marriage alongside his gorgeous wife, Naome Bishaka.
The lovebirds held an intimate get-together in a church celebrating Samwiri’s marriage to just be grateful for the years they have spent beside each other.
According to the Daily Monitor, the pair tied the knot in 1953 and have never looked back.
The happy couple graced their occasion in the presence of bishops and other clerics.
Samwiri and his fair lady have four children: two girls and two boys, who are still alive and well.
And just a simple glimpse of the jolly pair will tell you that the two are still youthful and full of life despite their age.
To them, love and respect have always been the common denominators in their flourishing relationship.
“I wanted a partner because I was a pillar, beautiful, educated and a daughter of a county chief of Ankole, who had started developments,” Naome opened up.
At 104, Samwiri has not lost his romantic touch and always refers to his lovely wife as 'sweet darling', even on the bad days.
"We got misunderstandings. But in all this, forgiveness, patience and above all prayers have kept us together," Samwiri said.
And without a doubt, their love gives people hope that soulmates still exist as long as there is respect, trust and endurance.
