We used to have a tv person who had a segment every Friday to wish people happy birthday at 100 or happy anniversary for 50 years and up. I do remember a couple of times there were people who were married 80 years. That is quite an accomplishment.

Hi estherlou! Wow, that is amazing! They are really blessed. Just imagine living to a hundred and still living with the same partner for 80 years, that is really incredible. They must be very happy celebrating 80 years of marriage. How lovely indeed! Take care and have a nice day! :)
