The Longest Married Couple

“Honey, I still love you”

The honoring of one’s life is a sacred ritual, a celebration of legacy and achievement and a life well lived.  We at Well Marriage Center tip our hats and acknowledge/celebrate the life of Theresa Faiss, who passed away this week at the age of 97.  Theresa, along with her husband Wilbur (former Senator of Nevada), were honored as the longest married couple earlier this year by the Worldwide Marriage Encounter.  2012 marked the couples 79th year of marriage!  What an achievement! 79 years – that’s a lifetime for many people!

In an earlier interview, Wilbur Faiss told the Review-Journal that the key to success in politics or in marriage is “compromise.”  “Every day I ask her how she feels and, ‘Is there anything I can do for you?’ And say, ‘Honey, I still love you.'”

We at Well Marriage Center recognize the incredible power that, “Honey, I still love you,” has in sustaining and deepening our most precious relationship.  Let Theresa and Wilbur’s incredible commitment motivate us to appreciate, affirm, and admire our spouse this weekend!  “Honey, I still love you.”  We encourage couples to care for and nurture their marriages!  Anyone want to set a goal of 79 years?  What about 80! :)
