April 5, 2019

North Carolina couple D.W. Williams, 103, and his wife, Willie, 100, may hold the secret to long life and love. On Sunday, the two celebrated their birthdays and their 82nd wedding anniversary.

According to WSOC-TV, their ability to maintain a healthy marriage is simple. 

“Just be nice to each other,” the pair said.


Their granddaughter, BJ Williams-Greene, who threw them a party to celebrate, shared a bit more insight.

“It’s communication and loving each other and working together. They are each other’s best friend,” she told the station.

Married in 1937, their love has truly withstood the test of time. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Williams!
