Maldwyn Hughes, 86, and Shirley Luck-Hughes, 79, have been married for nine years. Both previously widowed, they met in a churchyard in Bethesda, North Wales, while doing genealogical research. After marrying, Maldwyn continued to live in Wales, and Shirley remained in Johnstown, New York.
Mr Hughes, a retired electrical engineer, said: "Neither of us wanted to move away from our families and our homes.
"We don’t see as much of each other as every other husband and wife but we are still happy.
"She calls me every Wednesday and I call every Saturday and we speak for about an hour about what we have been up to in the week.
"I do miss her but it helps that we can keep in contact on the phone." [Link]
