East Texas Couples Celebrate Being Married 50 Years Or More

For many couples, getting through the first year of marriage can be a challenge. After the wedding cake is gone and the honeymoon is over, that's when the real work kicks in. But as KLTV 7's LaKecia Shockley shows you, it may be easier than you think. Today, East Texas couples were honored for celebrating a blissful milestone.

If you asked Bob and Tommie Reed how long they've been married you might be surprised."We've been married 65 years!," said Tommie Reed. So, what's their secret and how do they make their relationship last ? "Love is the secret. If you don't love you might as well forget the whole thing," said Reed. Whether it's for love or friendship, one thing is for sure, couples married for fifty years and over--not only says a lot about their marriage, but their commitment to one another. "The effects of a marriage spread through the community. If you can stay together, it's a wonderful thing,"said Claudette Jones.
