An inspiring and heart-warming life story, this!

A Minnesota Catholic couple have been married for more than 83 years, producing 6 children, 39 grandchildren, 101 great-grand children, and, so far, 40 great-great-grandchildren!

One of the 40 great-great-grandchildren, David, is now married for 2 years to Christine, both aiming to break the record of their great-great-grandparents!

Secrets to their longevity?

One: no smokes nor drinks ("A waste of money!").

Two: no arguments! (Last argument in 1946! Mayme, the centenarian bride, says her husband, Clarence, 101, just does not talk out of turn because she does not give him the chance! biggrin )

Three: They remained faithful to their marriage vow "for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer!"

And a bucketful of humor!

Also, the bride (presumably her husband in tow most, if not all, of the time) attended Mass every day for the past 60 years or so since 1948, as a promise if her husband was cured of tuberculosis, and has prayed the Rosary daily up to now!
