Couple celebrates 80th Anniversary
February 8, 2012
BROOKFIELD, Wis., Feb. 7 (UPI) -- A Wisconsin couple celebrating their 80th wedding anniversary agree the secret to their long marriage is that the husband "knows who's boss."
Roy Fleming, 100, and Dorothy Fleming, 95, marked their 80th anniversary Monday with a party in Brookfield, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Tuesday.
"He knows who's boss. That's how we got along," Dorothy Fleming quipped.
However, Roy Fleming said his wife was not entirely joking.
"Whatever she says is right," he said to laughter from the party-goers.
The couple's two sons, Earl and Allan, attended the party, and Earl said his own 60th wedding anniversary is coming up.
Granddaughter Shar Fleming said her grandparents complement each other perfectly.
"Grandpa still likes his beer. He had two at his 100th birthday, and a big cheeseburger. And Grandma loves her pizza. And they both love sweets. Grandpa can't see very well, and Grandma can't hear very well. So they make up for each other," she said.
