This Is Just A Nice Story

Frank and Anita Milford of England have just celebrated their 78th wedding anniversary.

The pair met as teenagers at a dance in Plymouth, southern England, in 1926 and married two years later.

Asked for the secret of their enduring union, Frank Milford, 98, a retired dock worker, was quoted in The Daily Telegraph as saying: "We don't always see eye to eye and we do have a small argument every day.

"But that comes and goes. We are always here for each other."

His 97-year-old wife added: "The key is give and take and lots of laughter."

With their relationship as strong as ever, the couple hope to beat the record for Britain's longest-ever marriage of 80 years, set by Percy and Florence Arrowsmith. Percy Arrowsmith died last year.

"There's every chance we could break that record," Anita Milford said.

"These days marriages don't last long. A lot of people get married with the idea that if it doesn't work out there's no worry, but we can't understand that."

They are very devoted to one another says the staff at the nursing home they moved into last year.
