The 100-year-old couple – still married, still going strong

‘We don’t know anyone else over 100.

We are really oddities: two people married for 78 years, one 103, the other 100.

We’ve outlived everybody.

And it’s rare, I recognise that.

We’re very lucky.

The best I can wish you is our luck.” Morrie Markoff is sitting on the sofa in his downtown Los Angeles apartment next to his wife, Betty.

They are delighted that someone from the “Manchester Guardian” has come to talk to them, though these days they are used to a degree of attention.

The 100-year-old couple – still married, still going strong

Morrie is 103 years old and his wife Betty is 100.

They’ve been together since 1938.

Morrie told The Guardian, “We’ve been together for nearly eight decades, and we still haven’t killed each other!” “Though we’ve tried a few times,” Betty jokingly said.

They must have some secrets to having such a successful marriage.

Betty said, “Just don’t let every complaint turn to anger… And you’ve got to like them.

Morrie would never use the word love; I do, but the actions are the same on either part.
