    My ex wife drove me nutz before we hit 8 years. I couldn't imagine sticking with the same nagging hag for 80!


    Secret of longest marriage is saying 'sorry' Tue May 31, 9:27 AM ET

    LONDON (Reuters) - A British couple who hold the world record for the longest marriage said Wednesday their success was down to a glass of whisky, a glass of sherry and the word "sorry."

    Percy and Florence Arrowsmith married on June 1, 1925 and will celebrate their 80th anniversary Wednesday.

    The Guinness World Records said Tuesday the couple held the title for the longest marriage and also for the oldest married couple's aggregate age.

    "I think we're very blessed," Florence, 100, told the BBC. "We still love one another, that's the most important part."

    Asked for their secret, Florence said you must never be afraid to say "sorry."

    "You must never go to sleep bad friends," she said, while Percy, 105, said his secret to marital bliss was just two words: "yes dear."

    The couple have three children, six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren and are planning a party soon.

    "I like sherry at lunch time and whisky at night and I'm looking forward very much to my party," said Florence.
