Married 78 Years

He's 100 and she's 96. Every morning he asks her if she's feeling okay and tells her he still loves her.

A family friend says:

"They have such a close family and have great family support in the way of sons Bob and Don," she said. "Don goes over every day, and Bob calls Theresa every day. They have breakfast together almost every weekend. And Will truly loves Theresa. You can see it in his eyes."

As far as having a long marriage and living a long and happy life, he offers a few tips:

Never smoke or drink.

Most of the time, be the one who says, "I apologize dear. You are right."

Remember birthdays, anniversaries and Valentine's Days, although it is not as important when you grow old.

Surprise her with gifts. Don't do it just on Valentine's Day or her birthday. Do it when she doesn't expect it and give her something she won't expect.

On disciplining children: Keep the children busy, and you won't have discipline problems. Make them work for money, and they will learn the value of money.

Just don't "overdo anything."

been able to do.

In general, it's not the quantity, it's the quality - my theory of the day.
