They’ve been married nearly 54 years, and it’s surreal to them how fast that time has gone. All of it seems like yesterday.
“Our marriage hasn’t been all peaches and cream,” Bill said. “We’ve had our ups and downs, but we’ve never broken up.”
“There’s always light at the end of the tunnel when things get rocky,” Nancy said.
They say that although sometimes marriage isn’t fun, it’s always fun to make up. They’ve never left the house without kissing goodbye.
“I just think it’s important because you’ll never know when it’ll be your last time,” Nancy said.
They both have made efforts during their marriage to avoid conflict by respecting each other. They agree that good things happen when you work at them.
“You have to persevere,” Nancy said. “You have to work. Too many people give up. It’s too easy to give up.”
