A marriage for the record books: N.C. centenarians tied knot 85 years ago

There is a couple in North Carolina who have been married for an amazing 85 years, a world record, according to worldrecordsacademy.org.

I attempted to interview this couple, Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher, for this blog, but a nurse’s aide caring for them said that unfortunately neither of them is up for granting interviews any more these days. In the meantime, you can check out an article published about them from last year by the Sun Journal newspaper in New Bern, N.C.

In my quest to profile marriages that have lasted 40 years or longer, progress has been a little slower than I had planned. I already have a number of couples lined up for this project but they’re not available to be interviewed just yet.

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very
    easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
    Great work!
