Seasons Residents Celebrate Love & Appreciation: Couple’s Edition

Seasons Storytellers Blog Header

This February, Seasons Retirement Communities asked our resident couples to share their advice and insights on long-lasting love. Their stories are not just tales of romance but reflections of a lifetime shared – filled with challenges, laughter, and those meaningful moments that define a relationship. Here’s what they had to say:

What Advice Would You Give for Long-Lasting Love?

“Work hard, love harder, forgive easy.”

– Bert and Thea

“Once you find your true love, don’t give up. We didn’t start to go out together until we were in our 70s! You must go through life with humour and look for the little things in life.”

– Beth and Geordie

“Be patient, be understanding, and always try to see the other’s point of view.”

– Dave and Vera

“Realize you can’t change another person. Have patience with the ‘tremendous trifles,’ such as if he squeezes the toothpaste from the top, and she squeezes the tube from the bottom – so annoying! Keep that sense of humour; be kind to your best friend.”

– Owen and Jeanne

“Marriage is a never-ending give and take. There is no ‘one-upmanship’; you must see past the rose-coloured glasses once the honeymoon ends. Both need to work at a marriage every single day. It is a two-way relationship.”

– Art and Mary

“Understanding and mutual respect, coupled with good family and friends, helped sustain a long and happy relationship.”

– Bob and Louise
