I love this story! I know that it’s not really to do with business, however, it’s a friday and an inspiring story like this one will really give a feel good factor for the weekend! When you’re in business, it’s important not to forget the important things in life.. like family and friends 🙂
Would love to know what their secret is.. a different era of expectations?
Frank and Anita Milford tied the knot at Torpoint registry office in Cornwall on May 26, 1928, after meeting at a dance in the St Budeaux area of Plymouth in 1926. Mr Milford is 101 and Mrs Milford will turn 101 next month, making them both the only living couple to reach a century.
The pair, who have two children, five grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, say they still have little arguments, but will always have a kiss and cuddle before they go to bed. Their 74-year-old son, also called Frank, said the secret to their parents’ successful marriage was simply being happy with each other. He said: “They’ve enjoyed themselves, enjoyed their lives very much but they’ve been always very content with their lot.”
Mr Milford worked at Devonport dockyard until he retired at 60. The couple stayed in Plymouth throughout the Second World War and the Blitz, twice having narrow escapes from bombs – including one which dropped on their house.
