Couple Share Marriage Tips As They Celebrate 70th Wedding Anniversary

An elderly couple from Reading, in the UK, shared a few tips on how they kept their marriage alive for 70 years.

"We wouldn't change it for the world," said a Reading couple as they celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary with friends and family last week.

Ruth and Harold Taylor may be 92 and 91 but they had youthful smiles on their faces as they welcomed guests to join them in marking the platinum milestone on Tuesday.

Meeting in 1940 at the old Post Office headquarters in Friar Street, where they both worked, the pair have fond memories of their shared life.

Within four years of first meeting, Ruth and Harold tied the knot in a family ceremony at Christ Church, though Ruth remembers the ongoing Second World War had its impact.

She said: "It was a big family do but everything was on rations so we didn't have a big cake or anything like that."

Shortly after getting married they both did their bit for the country with Harold serving as a flight engineer with the RAF in Malta and Ruth working with the WAF in Sutton Coldfield.

After the war they returned to Reading and Harold continued working for the Post Office until his retirement at 58.

Joined by friends and fellow residents at Pegasus Court this week, Ruth said the only secret to a long marriage is give and take.

She added: "You just have to be tolerant of one another."
