Family relationships are a lot of work. After all, you always need to be able to respect your partner’s opinion, compromise, admit your mistakes and love a person for who s/he is, without trying to remake or educate him/her. Osborne and Edith Hancock sat at the same desk at school. Initially, Osborne annoyed Edith for constantly copying from her.
But time has passed and everything has changed. Romantic relationships were formed between the young people and they began to meet. Later Osborne was called up to serve in the army and faithful Edith waited for her beloved for two years. Upon returning, the guy made a marriage proposal to the girl and Edith agreed. They got married when they both were 22 years old.
70 years have passed since that day. Osborne and Edith still love each other as they did back in 1950. The couple says that in their family life there was everything: quarrels and misunderstandings… But they passed all the tests together. During Osborne’s service in the army Edith wrote letters to him every day, and Osborne answered each one. The couple say that for so many years of living together they already know each other perfectly and literally guess the thoughts of the partner.
Osborne and Edith are already 92 years old, but they do not feel their age at all. They are happy to take care of each other and are very happy.
