Katy, Texas, couple celebrates 70 years of marriage
The Houston Chronicle reports on the 70-year marriage of Church of Christ members:
Audrey Cox, who will be 88 in September, said, “There was a different set of rules in 1942. When you made a commitment, you stuck with it.
“Take a sweet and gentle man and a firecracker wife and you tough it out through the good and bad and the ins and outs. There are times you don’t love each other, but you love each other. You just don’t give up,” she said.
Her advice to young couples today is to live right, no smoking or drinking and “love each other and tough it out.”
Clodis, who turned 89 in June, gives this advice: “Tell them to marry in the church and get along spiritually. When you have a problem arise, you have to control life by being like Jesus – caring and forgiving.”
