In recent years, I’ve heard a lot of debate from younger generations about why people today still get married. Long ago, women married for financial security and to bear children, but today these points are no longer valid.
So no one really needs to get married anymore — but if you are a hopeless romantic like I am, you still believe in everlasting love…and the important vows that come with it. That’s exactly why the following story touched my heart so deeply. In it we meet Dale and Alice Rockey, a couple who started out admiring each other in high school and are still side-by-side decades later…only now they trail each other in wheelchairs!
In 2015, Dale and Alice were recognized as the “Longest Married Couple” by the California-based Worldwide Marriage Encounter project. On December 29th, 2015, the Rockeys celebrated their 81st wedding anniversary and then spoke to CBS Sunday Morning about their precious union.
The secret to their marriage’s success? Alice tells all in the video, saying “I always let him have my way.”
