Fairfax, VA
Maurice & Cecile, Fairfax, VA - married 1940

Maurice:
Thereís a physical attraction, and then thereís an attraction of personality.   I think that became even better.  When you first get married, you donít know that person much.  I mean, you donít understand as much as you do later on, see?  Itís a thing that develops over the years.  Well, after 58 years, you get to know a person so well, that even your thoughts sometimes are the same.  You think the same thing at the same time.  Itís uncanny.

I think that we both have changed over the years.  But thereís a greater understanding as time goes on.  And even now, when we get into a tiff, we get real mad, and then all of a sudden, we burst out laughing.
