Marriage is the ultimate commitment between two people. Marriage is meant to unite couples forever.
According to a recent survey, half of the 21st-century American married couples have divorced.
Is there a secret to a lasting marriage? We can learn from elderly married couples.
Japan is famous for its numerous centenarians. Japan has the world’s lowest mortality rate due to its healthy lifestyle and rich environment.
The oldest married couple in Japan was recently recognized by the Guinness World Records.
Masao, 108 years old, and Miyako, 100 years old, have been married for 81 years since October 1937.
Matsumoto and Masao never got married because Masao had to serve during World War II, according to the oldest couple.
Nevertheless, the elderly couple had a large family anyway.
Thankfully, older married couples can motivate us to maintain strong loving relationships like theirs.
As Miyako mentioned, a solid and long-term partnership requires patience.
