If you have ever wondered what the secret is to a long and happy marriage, now is your chance to find out. Married in May of 1924, Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher have been enjoying wedded bliss for nearly 86 years and are eager to share their insights.
The Fishers were joined in holy matrimony during the age of Model T’s and flappers, but the North Carolina lovebirds are using a decidedly modern method to share their thoughts on love and marriage. Through February 12, Twitter and Facebook users can post questions for the couple and on February 14, Valentine’s Day, they will tweet their answers to fourteen of the best inquiries.
The couple’s granddaughter, Iris Godett, says her grandparents just want to share what they’ve learned with the younger generation. And in this day of drive-through marriages and soaring divorce rates, it is heartening to see that the questions are already pouring in from those who want to know how to make their own relationships work.
