... Happy couple offer pointers after 65 years of marr Happy couple offer pointers after 65 years of marr

2 May 2008

A couple who have been married for 65 years have shared their secrets of success.

Harold and Bessie Littler were married in 1943 at St Paul's Church in Walkden after meeting three years earlier while working at the town's Montague Burton Mill.

According to Mrs Littler, who is now 83 years of age, the secret of a happy marriage is the ability reach a compromise.

She also stressed the importance of love and affection.

"Learn to give and take and you will have happy marriage. It is also important to look after each other," she told the Leigh Journal.

As well as numerous fond memories, the couple also have four children, eight grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.

They celebrated their big day with a family meal.
