If you can use a love story right now, surf over immediately to the latest entry in The Oregonian’s continuing series featuring inspiring couples who have reached the 50-, 60- and 70-year mark in marriage.
The article at http://www.oregonlive.com/living/index.ssf/2013/01/northwest_love_stories_for_60.html features Eric Marcoux, 82, and Eugene Woodworth, 84, who have been together since they met in Chicago in 1953.
This delightful couple renews their “wedding vows once a month as part of our spiritual practice,” and “make a point of going to Starbucks every morning” together. While they don’t have much explicit advice for other couples — Marcoux said, “God, that’s just a terror of a question,” when asked — it’s easy to see between the lines: like each other, have a sense of humor, and have a commitment to each other. Enjoy!
