Marriage, it is said, is a journey between two partners who understand each other and would want to live together till death do them part.
So is the marriage between former President John Agyekum Kufuor and his wife, Theresa (nee Mensah) whose marriage is almost as old as Ghana itself.
Having married in 1962, Ghana was only five years as an independent country and two years as a republic.
With such number of married years under his belt, former President Kufuor is in a very good position to give some marriage tips and he has just done that.
According to him, for marriage to be succesful, there should be mutual respect and sincerity between partners.
"I've been married for 55 years. Respect your partner, try to be sincere with your him/her, that has been my secret", he revealed in an interview with Bola Ray on Starr FM's Starr Chat on Wednesday.
Mr and Mrs Kufuor met while schooling in London to become a lawyer and a nurse respectively.
They have five children and eight grand children.
