When it comes to marriage, everyone takes a vow to stay together till “death do us part”. Unfortunately, not many people actually keep that promise. In fact, according to the American Psychological Association, 40 to 50 percent of married couples in the United States wind up getting a divorce.
While those statistics are undoubtedly depressing, there are still many people who make their marriage work. In this post, we’re going to show you one of those people. Despite facing many difficulties, this couple has been married for over 50 years!
Meet Bill and his wife Glad. They started dating when they were just 16-17 years old. Not long after, they tied the knot and have stayed together ever since.
In 2005, their marriage faced its biggest test. Glad was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and things took a turn for the worst. Bill needed to take care of her around the clock. He had to brush her teeth, comb her hair, and do just about everything for her.
Some people would not have been able to deal with this situation. But, Bill doesn’t see it as a burden on his life. He sees it as a privilege to take care of the woman he loves.
Take a look at the video below to see their entire story.
