Jack and Beverly just celebrated 60 years of marriage, and they say it’s gone by fast, but it’s been really good growing older together and experiencing life.
“To me, she hasn’t changed,” Jack said. “Yeah she has gray hair, but you don’t really notice that. She’s a caring person. She always has been. If something happened to her before me, I don’t know how I’d handle it. She’s my right arm.”
The Fosters said that communication, forgiveness and their faith have played a big part in the success of their six-decade-long marriage.
“Forgiving each other is the main thing,” Beverly said. “You can’t just keep living mad at each other all the time. We all make mistakes. Neither one of us believes in divorce. When we got married, we knew we were gonna be together forever.”
Jack agreed. He would encourage any newlyweds who needed guidance to listen to advice from couples who are older than them.
“Pay attention to people who have been around for a while,” he said. “They have wisdom. They’ve been through the mill, they’ve faced it all, and they’ve made it. The whole base of all of it is L-O-V-E.”
