“I guess you just stick to it, come what may.”

That is the key to a lasting marriage, according to Mayme Vail, who has been married to her husband for 83 years.

Complex simplicity at its best. You just keep your promise.

It's funny how the majority of couples in this country think that actually staying married is just way too hard and that those who do manage have somehow tapped into an earth-shattering secret that isn't for all to know.

83 years later, "I do" still means something to them...very refreshing!
