Married 55 Years, CNY Couple Shares a Laugh and Some Chores Of Marriage Success
A Central New York couple married 54-years (err..55 years) went back and forth in a hilarious email exchange highlighting the beauty, comedy and some of the chores associated with a long and happy marriage.
The discussion started on our daily Keeler in the Morning Show on WIBX 950 and involved the video clip below. In it, a man happily wed for 75-years is asked the keys to a long lasting and happy marriage.
His response: "Well, just the normal three things that you have to do - take out the trash, put down the toilet seat and [say] Yes, Dear!"
After briefly sharing the viral clip with our radio audience, a listener to the show emailed me to say that she'd heard the segment and wanted to 'vent' on the topic.
Email from 'L':

While wife is doing her listed items, husband is doing:

- fixing [everything]
- providing [fill in the blank]
- making wife’s computer work
- making wife’s printer work
- remembering our anniversary (because wife doesn’t know we’ve been married 55 years, not 54)
Keep this up and there may not be a 56.
Thank you to both 'Mr. and Mrs. L' for sharing some of the keys to marriage success. And, here's to another 55-years of wedded bliss!
