This Couple Just Celebrated 82 Years of Marriage — He’s 103 and She’s 100!


Charlotte, NC — D.W. and Willie Williams, who are 103 and 100 years old respectively, recently celebrated their 82nd wedding anniversary. After all those years of being happily married, the pair is still going strong!

Their daughter, Alice Erin, and granddaughter, BJ Williams-Greene, hosted an anniversary party at their local church, where they have been members for 19 years. They celebrated the Williams’ long lives and marriage and sang hymns with their friends and family.
The couple, who met in Newberry, South Carolina in 1935 and married in 1937, have one child and one grandchild.

“My grandparents’ marriage is an inspiration. They communicate and make decisions together, they strive and achieve together and everyone loves them because they are genuine. They just inspire everyone to be the best they can be,” Williams-Greene told Good Morning America. “They have had such a long, successful marriage because they put God first and are each other’s best friends.”

The couple, who won the state’s contest for the longest married couple in 2014, said they enjoyed watching country westerns and playing crossword puzzles together. They also believe that communication is very important.

“We don’t argue or have any fights. If we have a misunderstanding, we just talk it over,” they said. “The secret to a long marriage is just be nice to each other.”

Moreover, they shared that they’ve lived through the Great Depression, the civil rights era, and numerous wars together. But they were able to overcome it because “there were a lot of people willing to assist, who didn’t let the color of our skin stand in the way,” they said.

When asked what they would do if they would be given another 100 years, D.W. replied, “I don’t know.”

“Sit around the house,” Willie added, making her husband laugh.
