Divorce Not An Option After 80 Years Together

 Posted on December 00, 0000 in Divorce

ChristineDivorce is rampant in our society and taking the way out can be a breath of fresh air.

But what about the breath of 80 year old love?

November 25, 1932, marked the first "I do" by John and Ann Betar of Fairfield, Connecticut. Eighty years later they not only have happiness together but five children, 14 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren to add to the bliss.

Worldwide Marriage Encounter, a Christian organization from San Bernardino, California, sought out, like it does every year, to honor the 2013 "Longest Married" winner to exemplify and promote lasting marriages to encourage younger couples. By showcasing couples who have made commitments work through thick and thin truly gives couples who are just starting or in mid range, people to look up to who make it last.

The Betar’s consider to be blessed and living out their secret to their marriage on a daily basis – to always compromise and to not judge. The words of wisdom from John, 101, and Ann, 97, mark seriousness to making a marriage last, and last regardless of what others think. Originally setup in an arranged marriage, Ann defied her parents and eloped with John instead proving she knew best for herself on a life-long mate.

Marriage requires work and time. However, if you are in a marriage where you have tried and tried to compromise and not judge in order to make the marriage work without a positive response from your spouse, a separation or divorce might be in order.
