I can imagine - My grandparents were 1 month off their 70th wedding anniversary, but Grandma has just died. Both are/were in their early 90´s.

AAA - that's good going! dh would be 126, so no hope for us!!!!

I was impressed that dh's parents just celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary, they could make it another 24 years I guess!

My Great Grandad and Great Gran got to up to 74 years, and actually got married the same year.

It is a wonderful story
