Unformatted text preview: Britain's longest married couple celebrate a quiet 80th anniversary By Vikki Miller Last Updated: 5:21PM BST 25 May 2008 http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/2020233/Britain's-longest-married-couple- celebrate-a-quiet-80th-anniversary.html 1928 wedding photo of Frank and Anita Milford Photo: SWNS Frank Milford, 100, and Anita Milford, 99, will celebrate by spending a quiet weekend together - like most of their days. At our age thats all you need, said Mr Milford. Just us together, no big fuss. The pair will equal the record for being Britains longest married couple on Monday. Percy and Florence Arrowsmith from Hereford were also married for 80 years. The rarely achieved 80th anniversary is symbolised by oak. And the secret to a successful marriage? Share a little kiss and cuddle every night before bed. Its our golden rule, Mrs Milford said. Couples these days dont last long because they often dont take enough time for each other. There just isnt enough respect - love is about give and take. Our advice to young couples would be to make time for a little romance every day. 8.1 Mr Milford added: To win over your sweetheart you need a dose of old fashioned chivalry and dont let your standards slip. We do everything together even after nearly 80 years. The couple met in 1926 at a YMCA dance and wed two years later in east Cornwall. After the wedding, they went to see a Charlie Chaplin movie. They had two children, Marie and Frank, who are now in their seventies They lived in a three-bedroom bungalow for 70 years before deciding to move into a care home together in 2005. But, even after 80 years, there are still daily squabbles. Not big rows, just the odd cross word, said Mrs Milford. As far as Im concerned, its healthy. The couple wed in the same month that Walt Disney brought out a short animated film called Plane Crazy, which featured Mickey and Minnie Mouse for the first time. 8.2 Chapter 8 Interpersonal Attraction THE BENEFITS OF BEING LIKED .............................................................................6 Research Focus: Affiliation and Anxiety.............................................................................9 INITIAL ATTRACTION................................................................................................11 Physical Attractiveness..................................................................................................11 Gender Differences in Perceived Attractiveness.......................................................16 Why is Physical Attractiveness so Important?...............................................................17 Similarity: We Like Those Who Are Like Us..............................................................18 Why Does Similarity Matter?........................................................................................19 Status Similarity.............................................................................................................19Status Similarity....
