WOODLYN, Pa. (FOX 29) - A Delaware County couple has been married for 70 years. So what's the secret to a loving marriage?
FOX 29's Dawn Timmeney spoke with the happy couple.
"I think it was the best thing that ever happened to me." Dominic Liberatore says he met the love of his life, Armajean, at a roller skating rink in Chester, Pa.
Dominic was 20 and had just returned home after serving in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II. Armajean, who goes by Jean, was 17 at the time.
"After a year and four months, I asked her to marry me," Dominic explained.
Jean said yes and the two have shared a life together ever since. They settled down in Woodlyn, Pa. where they raised their family.
The loving couple says the secret to a good marriage is patience, understanding and a good sense of humor.
Dominic says he rarely goes anywhere without Jean except for Thursday when he snuck out to get his sweetheart flowers for Valentine's Day.
The couple renewed their vows on their 50th anniversary, then again just a few weeks ago.
Besides their four children, the couple has 13 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren with another on the way.
"I love as much today as the day I met her," Dominic said.
