I am leading the celebrations for a couple celebrating their diamond anniversary this Saturday (17th Feb).
They married on the 15th February 1958, a day after Valentine’s day, but the nearest they could get to it. Learning how their love has deepened over 60 years has been inspirational.
Wendy and Arthur put the success of their marriage down to kindness to each other – and tolerance. This surprised me a little when they mentioned it.
When cupid’s arrow hits, tolerance is not the first word that comes to mind. But learning to love someone, despite their faults, is probably what true love is all about. So if my husband can love me, with my earth shattering snoring, then ours is a deep love indeed!
