There is something special about a couple who have spent the majority of their lives together. Nowadays, our courthouses probably have more people filing for divorces than marriage licenses. This indicates a dangerous trend for our society.

Every couple out there who is currently considering marriage should also consider the obligations and committment that goes along with it. It is certain that the Perdues, who are featured in this weeks publication upon the celebration of their 74th anniversary, have weathered many hard times during those years. But, it is also certain that the good times and memories overshadow everything else.

Marriage is a partnership and it requires that both partners compromise and do their best live up to the committment they have made.
