Cupid's aim so true when he spotted Dorothy and Danny
If anyone can talk authoritatively of love on Valentine's Day, then it is Danny and Dorothy McBride, who will celebrate 60 years of marriage in April. The Coleraine couple, both aged 82, reinforce the message of the survey noted above by saying that married life has been good for them.
They come from a generation when the words "till death do us part" in the wedding vows were really meant. And staff at the care home where they now live believe they have uncovered the secret of that happy relationship. Danny, even yet, is always checking that Dorothy is happy with her lot, and the couple's devotion to each other is obvious. Love need not cost a lot.
