Ageless Love: 20 Couples That Have Been In Love For 50 Years Or More
January 12, 2018 10:41 By Fabiosa
It is said that the greatest source of happiness in life is the conviction that we have a reliable partner.
Love and marriage
When you find a person who makes you feel weightless and carefree, it simply means that you find love. Coming to the conclusion that you want to spend the rest of your life with someone is probably one of the boldest decisions in our life!
However, for most couples, falling in love seems to be the easier part of the equation. Little wonder why they say "it is not about getting married but staying married".
Fifty years of love
With the epic marriage failures all over the world, it is always a breath of fresh air to know that some people still have solid unions. But it even gets better to note that these marriages have lasted for several decades and are still strong.
Such is the case with the couples we point out in this post.
Andretti took to Twitter to share a picture of his grandparents who have been married for fifty years. Just like every other couple, they had life challenges, but they worked through every hurdle and stayed true to their love.

Mama was “a bride stolen from heaven,” said Uncle Rey during my parents’ golden wedding anniversary party. He was sharing how his older brother, my papa, convinced mama 50 years ago to give up her plan to become a nun and to consider a future with my father instead. My father, on the other hand, had it easy with girls. “I told them I loved them but I never told them I would marry them,” he used to say when recalling how he would explain to mama who later found out about the girls before her. Uncle Rey, the youngest son in the Rimando brood, shared this as well, citing first hand experience of reading several of those girls’ letters of love and even marriage proposals. He was my father’s sidekick when he was courting mama. Eventually, mama was won over and they married on December 17, 1967. She explained that she saw in papa a responsible man. “Find a partner who is not only nice and mabait, but one who is responsible. A responsible man is a responsible parent and the best partner in life,” she told the intimate crowd of lifetime friends and relatives. She recalled how papa would read to us, toilet trained us, and tucked us in bed every night when we were young, and found ways and means to put us up in good schools. “I loved him even more,” she said. When papa got sick and was going thru several medical challenges, she realised it was still part of God’s plan for them because we had finished school by then. They could focus just on each other. “God has the best plans for us. Cesar was God’s best for me,” she said. ????: @estebanlainaphotography #mayforever #goldenwedding #goldenweddinganniversary #50yearsanniversary #50yearsoflove #50yearsofmarriage #couplegoals #marriagegoals #marriage

Fifty years of love, friendship, and few kids
50 years of marriage, love and a few kids sprinkled in there. This was just the sweetest session but the best part was when their daughter Mykal asked "how did you propose? I never heard that story." Dad, " I did it in the car nothing special, I didn't think she'd say yes." Well lucky for him she did. They were so sweet to capture with such a pure and beautiful love.

When we decided to do an anniversary shoot for my Nana and Papa's 50th anniversary coming up in May, I knew it was going to be amazing. What I didn't know was just HOW amazing it would be! They were singing to each other, dancing together, and laughing up a storm! I teared up watching them interact. What a blessing to grow up seeing such a beautiful example of what a Christ centered marriage looks like. I love them more than word can say. <3
