How to Stay Married for 84 Years!
Married for 84 Years!
An African American couple from North Carolina has entered the 'Guinness World Records Book' for having the world record of the longest marriage for a living couple - 84 years!
Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher married on May 13, 1924. He was born June 10, 1905. She was born December 10, 1907.
How do you stay married for so long? The first thing I noticed is their birth signs. He's a Gemini and she is a Sagittarius. Two compatible astrology signs. Perhaps this is why they came together in the first place. But why so long?
In reading an article published about them in the New Bern Sun Journal the couple said they have no advice and both admit that they did not know they would be married for so long.
They also said that they both share the title of 'boss.'
She says he was not mean, not a fighter and not much to look at. He is the only boyfriend she ever had.
He says she never gave him any trouble, they may have disagreed but they never argued.
They watch TV together but she leaves when the baseball game comes on. They now have separate bedrooms and she says he can stay up until the last ball is thrown.
The couple also have different religions but it did not tear them apart.
He looks towards her with love and concern. She looks towards him for strength and guidance.
They both agree if they had to do it again, they wouldn't change a thing.
Perhaps it is just the respect they had for each other, and the interest in raising a family together. They both seem to possess a sense of fairplay.
I wish them the best!
