They Said 'I Do' And They Did

Seven siblings in South Carolina have each been married for more than fifty years.

Totaled, they have been wed nearly four centuries.

They are five brothers and two sisters, ranging in age from 70 to 86. They have been married anywhere from 50 years to 61.

Clearly, the children of Walter and Rosabel Williamson took their vows seriously. Like their parents, married 53 years, they said, "I do," and meant it.

"We were taught, early on, that you make a commitment, you stick to it," said Charles Williamson, 82. The Tucker resident and his 79-year-old wife, Mabel, were wed July 17, 1949. "You marry the right folks, too." [Link]
