After 61 years of marriage, James and Eileen Finn know what it takes to make it work. The Irish couple met 66 years ago this week and just celebrated their 61st anniversary.
So what’s their secret for a long and joyful marriage? “Patience and compromise are important,” 94-year-old Eileen says. “Compromise has a lot to do with a happy marriage, I think.”
Now they’re enjoying life in their nursing home and their celebrity-like status with residents. “I think we're the longest-married couple living here at the moment," Eileen says.” Congratulations to the happy couple!
