Joe and Nellie have perfect recipe for long life together

Editor's Viewpoint

Joe and Nellie Graham's 75th wedding anniversary is a remarkable landmark. Obviously both, aged 99 and 98 respectively, are blessed with good genes, but they also owe their own and their marriage's longevity to a huge dose of common sense.

A bowl of porridge each morning and no rows is their recipe for a long life together. What that really means is good home cooking and avoiding much of the stress that plagues modern life and modern relationships.

They are a couple who take joy in each other and in their extended family. A straightforward attitude to life is obviously a key element in ensuring that it is a long and happy one.
