If we're looking for real examples of relationship goals in everyday life, we all need to take a look at the oldest generation of couples. These couples have stayed together and managed for 50, 60, or even 70 years, and they are still as in love as ever.
They've mastered the whole parenting thing, their children survived and went on to have children of their own so they graduated to being grandparents, and they're still as happy as when they first met.
Celebrating 50 Years Of Fun
Celebrating their 50th anniversary by taking a page out of the Beverly Hillbillies' book, this couple knows exactly who they are and how they want to celebrate their special day.
Sharing The Workload
You're supposed to share the workload with your spouse. They're your teammate for life, the person you share your burdens and experience life with, including the mundane things like grocery shopping.
The Fun Never Stops
When you were a child, your parents always got mad at your for standing on the edge of the cart because of the added weight, but your husband knows better than to complain about that. She's trained him well!
You Can Teach An Old Dog New Tricks
You're never too old to have a little fun with your husband, and this couple gets that. It might be embarrassing to your teenage grandson to see you out skateboarding, but that makes it even more fun.
In Sickness And In Health
You promised to be there for your partner in sickness and in health, and this man stepped up to the plate after his wife injured her wrist and needed help with her hair.
Their Grandson Doesn't Need A Bike Anway
That bike is pretty small, which means so is the grandchild that these grandparents snagged the bike from. The kid can focus on learning to walk or read or something else important while these two play around.
Teamwork Makes The Dream Work
So there's only one scooter left in the store, but realistically, both of you need the extra help, so what did they expect you to do? One can take the wheel and the other's got the gas pedal.
How Does It Taste?
You might be the person who told your husband that if he smashes a piece of wedding cake into your face, you'd get an annulment the same day, but this couple definitely didn't have that rule.
Riding In Style
Just because you can't afford to buy two electric scooters doesn't mean that you're completely out of luck. With a little creativity, you can always manage to come up with a solution.
He'd Be Lost Without Her
No, literally, he would be lost if it weren't for Jan. He's more than happy to follow her wherever she wants to take him, because he knows he has a terrible sense of direction, and she's who he wants to spend his time with anyway.
He's Learned A Thing Or Two
After 66 years of marriage, this husband has learned that it's a lot easier (and a lot more enjoyable for him) to give in and take part in the pedicure rather than complaining.
Enjoying Their Daily Lunch Date
Every day, this couple goes into a local Starbucks to enjoy their lunch together, and every day, they leave the store holding hands. Whoever said routine was a bad thing clearly hasn't met this couple.
It's Pizza Day At Grandma And Grandpa's House
Everyone knows grandparents have a tendency to go overboard with the food when they have their grandchildren coming to visit, but that is one seriously large pizza to try to eat.
From 1968 To 2018
After 50 years together, this couple dusted off that old bike and went back to the exact spot where the original photo was taken so they could recreate it to show the grandkids.
That's One Way To Solve An Argument
You can just picture some older woman walking into the living, shoving a jar of pickles into her husband's face and saying nothing, waiting for him to open it for her.
From 48 Hours Of Knowing Each Other To A Lifetime Together
Forty-eight hours after meeting each other at Woodstock, this couple took the top photo, and 50 years later, they decided to recreate the moment to celebrate the anniversary they didn't know they were going to reach at that time.
Together For Longer Than Some People Live
Imagine getting to the year where you celebrate your 70th anniversary of being married to the person you love. That's practically unheard of. They've earned the right to cake and balloons.
They'll Always Be Easy To Find
Just like when parents dress their children in matching outfits on vacation, this couple adopted the same method. That way, when one of them gets lost, they can just say, "Have you seen a senior citizen wearing a super bright jacket like mine?"
Couples That Color Together Stay Together
If you thought that the coloring pages at the table were just for the children, you thought wrong. Show me the rule that says grandparents aren't allowed to use the crayons and then we'll talk.
Embracing The Little Moments
Any couple who has been together for a long time will tell you that you have to take advantage of the little moments you have together and to give your partner affection when you can, which is exactly what she's doing.
Take Me Out To The Ballgame For Date Night
And they've been supporting their favorite team for just about as long as they've been together, so naturally, they had to get some custom jerseys made to wear on game day.
You're Going To Pay For That One
A move like this is sure to backfire on you. Just wait until she throws out all of the snacks and desserts in the house because she thinks she's gained weight, and then you'll be the one who suffers!
You Have To Document The Moment
Usually, you would think that your husband would be more concerned about getting you out of your crashed car before he stopped to take a photo, but you'll laugh about it a few months from now.
You See Them Rollin'
Who even knew that they made a two-seater version of these scooters? It makes sense, and it makes for a cozy day of traveling around the mall with your husband.
You're Never Too Old For Games
An older couple walks into an arcade and they want to play...the deer shooting game? You might've pegged them for a pinball or claw machine kind of couple, but you'd be wrong.
Out For An Evening Ride
You don't have to spend every moment of the day with your husband, but it sure is nice to have those moments that you can share together, even if it's on his break from work and it involves him peddling you around.
Rita And Jan Are Smart Women
Do men ever really grow out of their wandering phase? Based on the fact that these shirts need to be made, I guess the answer is no. He wanders off, but at least you know where to return him to.
You Can Keep Your Backgammon And Your Bingo
You can keep your backgammon or your bingo or your euchre, in this home the residents are spicing things up by fencing each other. I guess that's one way to solve a marital dispute.
Monopoly Is One Way To Test A Relationship
Relationship advice you never thought you'd hear: find a partner that you can Monopoly with in public. If you can make it through the game without anyone flipping the board, you know you've found the right person.
Everyone Getting Their Daily Exercise
It doesn't matter how fast they can get around the block, as long as they're out there doing it. They've got their routine, and the cat gets to come along for the adventure too!
