Dave and Caroll Evans
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.
