When you get to have a 70th wedding anniversary, you receive letters of congratulations from all manner of important people.  That is exactly what my parents have achieved this month, and Prime Minister Kevin and his wife Therese were amongst quite a few who sent their well wishes.  Others included the Queen, the Premier of Queensland, the Governor of Queensland right down to our Mayor and our Local Member of Parliament.  I do think though that staying married for 70 years is definitely quite an achievement and deserves sincere congratulations.  


  1. They certainly deserve all the attention. A wonderful milestone, congrats to them!

  2. Whoa and to the same person too...What a couple. I think I make almost 50 years married but not to the same person...Definitely worth a statement!
