Longest Living Married Black Couple Gives Advice

Written by Oretha Winston on May 26, 2011 4:15 pm

 

Young  couples, do you need a renaissance in your relationship? Meet Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher of North Carolina. They have been married 86 years and hold the Guinness World Record for the longest marriage of a living couple and get this… Zelmyra is 101 years old and Herbert is 104.  They have 5 children, 10 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great grandchild. The happily married couple teamed up with Twitter to answer some relationship questions – their take on finding love, getting through hard times and more

Married on May 13, 1924, 105-year old Herbert, and 103-year-old Zelmyra do not pretend to know any secrets to a lasting marriage.  .  They are a sweet, aging pair that will tell you truthfully that they were married because Zelmyra “did not give [Herbert] any trouble” and Herbert “was not much to look at… [but] he was quiet and kind.”  After 86 years, they remain in the home where they raised their five children, sleep in different bedrooms and love each other all the same.

What is your advice to someone who is trying to keep the faith that Mr. Right is really out there?
Zelmyra: Mine was just around the corner! He is never too far away, so keep the faith – when you meet him, you’ll know.

What was the best piece of marriage advice you ever received?
H & Z: Respect, support and communicate with each other. Be faithful, honest and true. Love each other with all of your heart.

They hold the world record for length of marriage for two living persons.  Is your union built to last the test of time?

What a Blessing! ... and quite admirably gives hope at a time when the world has too easily done away with the "ideals" of this " Holy Institution ".
