Marriage can be beautiful when you choose the right partner for a union that is expected to last your life time till death do both of you apart, either jointly or separately.
Willie and D.W. Williams have a lot of life (and a lot of love) under their belts after the couple celebrated 82 years of marriage.
D.W. Williams, 103, and his wife Willie, 100, also celebrated their birthdays in 2019, which are just seven days apart.
According to their daughter and granddaughter, BJ Williams-Greene, they marked the trifecta of milestones by throwing the centenarian couple one big party at First Mayfield Memorial Baptist in Charlotte, North Carolina.

"To see them at this age and still doing well, it's just a blessing to have them here," Williams-Greene disclosed.
William and Willie said they remember meeting when cab rides were just 10 cents.
Together they have lived through wars, The Great Depression, and the Civil Rights Era.
But when it comes to keeping their love alive for the better part of a century, they disclosed that there's really no big secret.
"Just be nice to each other," they agreed.
“They are each other's best friend,” added Williams-Greene.
