The same thing can happen with divorce.


Today, we idolize celebrities who seem to change marriages almost as frequently as they change outfits.

Here in Florida, we have some of the most lenient divorce laws in the United States. While Nevada has the highest divorce rates, according to the National Vital Statistics Report and data collected by the U. Census Bureau, Florida ranks No. Yet, some couples have beaten the odds and not only have a long-term marriage but a genuinely happy one.

To find out what makes these relationships last, we visited with two area couples. When he returned to New Jersey, he found a job working on a cattle farm.

Lynn and Gwen happened to be there. Bert danced with Lynn, who was a high school junior at the time, and before the night was over, he got her. Three years later they married and today are the proud parents of four children—Shari, Kim, Bret and Kelly—and six grandkids, ranging in age from 23 to Gavin, Dawson, Kray, Sydney, Kade and Abby.

They feel blessed that all their family lives in the Marion County area and are able to get together frequently. Both are retired from their professional careers—Lynn as an elementary school teacher and Bert as a farm manager—but remain extremely busy. Bert stays active with his own cattle and hay operation and does farm consulting work.

Together, they sing in the choir and are active in church functions. They walk regularly, work in their yard and blueberry patch, and go out to eat with friends.

A lasting love

Shortly after that, Bert took a job in Florida, and the Mickel family moved to High Springs, then eventually to the Ocala area. It takes both people. I knew when I got married, it was going to be forever. The Mickels emphasize that both partners should complement each other when it comes to strengths and weaknesses. Jerry and Teddie, both 73, grew up in Ocala; as children, they were next door neighbors and both attended Ocala High School, graduating in They never dated as teens, however, and married other people.

Open heart, open mind

In the early s, Teddie found herself in a position she never anticipated: widowed and working three part-time jobs to support herself and her two teenage daughters, Cammie and Cindy. One of those jobs was at a dress shop in The Cascades shopping center. Soon, she was working for him part time. Within two years, they were married. Perhaps part of the reason is that they married in their 40s and had already learned a great deal from their first marriages and life in general.

Their youngest daughter, Cammie McLeod, also works in their business. Jerry and Teddie enjoy golf, tennis, boating, working out and dancing.

Final thought: single life in a small town — the empty chair syndrome and other single life torments

Not every marriage would thrive if husband and wife spent so much time together, but for this couple, working together is icing on the cake. Their type A personalities mesh together seamlessly, and they find that work adds meaning to their lives. I wanted a great friend who would blend with me and go through life with me.

Maybe it helps that our work is often based around happy people getting married!

Recently, we had a year-old man come in with his girlfriend who is in her 80s and they were so in love. Dating someone and seeing them every day would be better than moving in and being financially connected with someone you may not even want to talk to in six months.

Shortly thereafter, Bert left for the Army Reserves and was gone for six months. So what makes a marriage succeed over the long haul?
