Long road of happiness in successful marriage
ALMOST everyone carries a phone in their pocket and evidentially, the time.
In this day and age Marie and Dez Morgan may have never met.
That’s because the couple met when Dez asked Marie if she knew the time.
One thing led to another and now they’re celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary.
The pair’s son Michael Morgan said his dad lived life on a farm and that his mum was from the city.
“They had a little farm together and both worked jobs as well as the farm. “They were good workers. “Mum was a shop assistant for a long time and worked in retail.
“Dad on the other hand was an insurance assessor,” Michael said.
The couple celebrated with family at the Green Zebra restaurant in Kawana.
Their son said it was a special celebration.
“It’s very rare for couples to stay together these days let alone for 60 years,” he said.
Like all successful marriages, the question is ‘what’s their secret?’
Michael said his parents show each other kindness and also a lot of understanding.
With a sense of humour, he said “it helps that they’re both pretty deaf at the moment too.”
Jokes aside, it’s clear friendship is a good foundation of any relationship and Michael said “they’re just really good mates too.”
The 83 and 84-year-old had two children together and are now retired on the Coast.
THEN AND NOW: Dex and Marie Morgan celebrate the long yards.
