103-Year-Old Husband and 100-Year-Old Wife Celebrate 82 Years Of Marriage

Willie and D.W Williams are a married couple from North Carolina who recently celebrated many years of love, joy, and laughter on their 82nd wedding anniversary. DW is 103, and his wife Willie is 100. They also celebrated their birthdays, which are only one week apart, in addition to over eight decades of marriage. This triple milestone event was commemorated with a big party at First Mayfield Memorial Baptist in Charlotte, North Carolina, according to WSOC TV. Their Granddaughter, Williams-Greene, told the news outlet, “to see them at this age and still doing well; it’s just a blessing to have them here.” She added that they are each other’s “best friend.”

The couple noted that when they first met, cab rides were only 10 cents. While a lot has changed over their 80 plus years of marriage, their love for each other remains as strong as it has ever been. Their marriage has survived the Great Depression, WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Civil Rights Era, and 9/11. They say that they are incredibly lucky to have one another through these changing times. When asked about their secret to their extraordinarily long marriage, they just had a simple piece of advice, “Just be kind to each other.”

When their daughter and granddaughter threw them a party, local media quickly caught wind of the story. Their relatives were in attendance, and there were nice table cloths and balloons. Williams-Greene says that her grandparents represent living inspirations for long-standing, healthy, and loving relationships.
