Not everyone can boast of a long marriage, let alone a happy life together. That's why people are so eagerly looking for the secret of marital happiness. And one British couple has their own advice on this matter.

According to The Mirror, Josephine and Alfred Waterfield have already celebrated their 100th anniversary: he last November, and she on October 4. They have been married for 75 years, which means that their family is older than 121 countries in the world. They have also surpassed the length of Queen Elizabeth II's reign in terms of marriage.

According to Alfred, the secret of such a long love for them is their daily quarrel. This was confirmed by the couple's 74-year-old son Allen. However, he added that these are not real scandals, but minor domestic disputes.

Allen also revealed a secret that his father believes is the key to his longevity. And it's whiskey. "My dad loves whiskey, it's his drink. In fact, he drinks whiskey and beer with lunch every day and says it's good for him. They both drink Baileys every night before going to bed," the man added.

The couple had two sons together, and they have four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. They postponed their anniversary celebrations until their son Brian, who lives in Australia, could fly to the UK. Josephine and Alfred were presented with a special cake from the staff of the institution for their joint anniversary. According to the couple's children, the jubilees really enjoyed the celebration.

As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, American Tell Allison lived with his wife even longer - 80 years, and he also shared his recipe for family happiness and his own longevity.
