81-year marriage hasn't made these 99-year-olds sentimental
Dale and Alice Rockey are 99 years old and have reached their 81st wedding anniversary. A reporter from CBS News
went looking for a sweet and sentimental love story for Valentine's Day, but didn't quite get it from lovely Mr and Mrs Rockey.
'The Rockeys are each 99 years old. They met, as kids, just after the turn of the last century, in the small town of Hemingford, Nebraska.
"I didn't pay much attention to him, really."
Did he pay attention to her? "Not especially," replied Dale.....
How did he propose? "I asked her if she had any money!"...
So, is there a secret to how they've stayed together so long?
"Uh huh," said Alice. "I've always let him have my way!" '
Hope I can be half as sassy if I get to age 99!

We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

They seem to have the same wry sense of humor. Bet it takes a good sense of humor to stay married so long. LOL“Every day that they don’t find something is good for me.“ Billie Dunn

I've never known a couple married as long as 80 years, but I knew a couple who were married a little over 70 years. She was 15 when they married, he was 18 or 19. He once mentioned going to work for a business (that he was still working for in his 90's) when he was 15. The woman chimed in, "I was 15 when I went to work for [my husband]." They were the cutest couple I've known! They died just months apart, which seemed so fitting."Some circumstantial evidence is very strong, as when you find a trout in the milk."
