Couple celebrating 65th wedding anniversary explain what keeps them so happy

A COUPLE who celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary on Thursday say the secret to a long and happy marriage is being friends and always having plenty to natter about.
Margaret and David Matthews, from Marshalls Cross, are aged 84 and 88 respectively.
The pair married at St Peters Church in Parr on May 28, 1955.
They are proud great-grandparents-of-three, grandparents-of-nine and parents of three.
Margaret, who worked as a cleaner at St Helens Hospital before retiring, says the reason her marriage to former Ravenhead and Parkside miner David has lasted the test of time is because they are friends as well as partners.
She said: “The thing is with us is we’ve always been able to talk to each other really, even now he makes me a cup of tea and we have a good natter for two hours.
“After 65 years we haven’t run out of stuff to say to one another and because of that we always talk things through.


“So I’d say the secret is being friends and talking it all through as well as partners.
“We’ve been very bold really, this is just another anniversary for us but we do realise it is a big deal to be married this long as many people don’t bother nowadays.
“We’ve had a good life really, lots of ups and downs, like anyone, but we are happy and we’ve always been there for each other and that is what counts.”
