Love never fades for Brit couple even after 82 years together

London, Mon, 06 Feb 2012 ANI

London, Feb 6 (ANI): One of Britain's oldest married couples are still as happy as the day they met - almost 82 years ago.

 

Inseparable Lionel and Ellen Buxton tied the knot in 1936 have not spent more than one night apart from each other in the past eight decades.

 

"We have never been apart really and have never wanted anyone else," the Daily Mail quoted Ellen, 100, as saying.

 

"We have been married happily because we have been good friends as well as husband and wife. We have always made sure we have had nice evenings out together. Whether it is going for a romantic meal or out to play bingo," she stated.

 

Grandparents Ellen and Lionel, 99, both share all the same interests including TV soaps, bingo, cards, quizzes and reading novels.

 

The lovebirds, who live in Dover, Kent, even follow the same sports including darts, snooker and football and both are Charlton Athletic fans.

 

The pair who first met in March 1930 has seen 15 Prime Ministers come and go and watched on as Britain has fought a dozen conflicts.

 

They grew up in London's East End and met while working at the Henley Cable factory in north Woolwich.

 

After six years dating they got hitched in Plumstead, on July 18, 1936, and stayed in London for the next 48 years.

 

The couple, who have four grandchildren, are stronger than ever. They look after themselves with a carer coming just once a week to help out.

 

"We are more in love now than ever. We keep each other going," Ellen added. (ANI)
