Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - VALENTINE'S DAY -

AF­TER 30 years to­gether, this cou­ple say there is no real se­cret to a happy mar­riage. Just hard work and laugh­ter. We met at the Swan Hill Pi­o­neer Set­tle­ment. I was an ap­pren­tice car­pen­ter and she was in ad­min­is­tra­tion. I think it was prob­a­bly lust at first sight. I saw her and just thought ‘‘Wow!’’ and we went from there. Our life to­gether has been great. I don’t think there is re­ally a se­cret to a happy mar­riage. It’s like ev­ery­thing in life, if you don’t work hard and put the ef­fort in, you get noth­ing back. There are al­ways ups and downs, but you just keep work­ing at it. I’m not sure what we’ll do for Valen­tine’s Day – we’ll be work­ing so noth­ing much, I guess.
