Getting into a relationship is a serious matter but getting married is a lifetime decision. It’s something that you shouldn’t do impulsively.

The reason for this is marriage can be daunting for some and maintaining a long-lasting relationship may seem impossible to achieve.

It’s a different story for Marvin and Lucille Stone.

For them, “marriage is forever”. If some couple finds it difficult to last for a decade, these two have managed to be together for 6 decades already.

Marvin is 88 years old while Lucille is 81. Their simple yet heartfelt wedding was held in 1960 in Sterling, Nebraska.

“It was a typical wedding. We had a pastor who was in his first ceremony wedding… and he was a little shook but he did it and we were married,” Marvin shared in an interview with KHGI-TV.
