I recently had the chance to visit my fraternal grandparents in Ohio.  They have been married an incredible 71 years!  They still live together, alone, in the house that they built 50 years ago. 


I just found out that they went here on their first date.

The crevice of doom must be good luck!!!

What a lovely couple...Hardly look 70 must have been babies when they married

Love it! I wish my grandparents were still around.
I bet those two have the greatest stories ever.

Amazing - both that they have been married that long and that they still live in their home. It gives me hope. :)
