Secret to a successful marriage

February 1954: J. Frank Winebrenner, wed 72 years, when asked what the secret to his successful marriage was, replied, "We did little fussin'. We said little. Mostly we just set."

Looks like Frank died in March 1955 and Tressa in 1956. They're still "setting" together, saying little.

How sweet. I remember an Ann Landers quote about long lasting marriages. I don't remember it exactly but the point was that the couples are usually very good friends before they fall in love. Landers believed that was the secret for their success and I agree.

Plus No. 1 - To not have a spouse that needs to yammer on all the time (goes for both genders).
Questionable - A bachelor son at 47 years old? Must have been put off of marriage cause he couldn't find a girl that didn't yammer on all the time.
