lasting love | ted + clare


Ted + Clare.
Married on the 21st April 1955

How did you two meet?
“It was a blind date! My cousin, Fleur, set it up. She had arranged a barbeque at McLean’s bridge and suggested I come along for Ted. Originally I quite objected to her setting me up! But I went along in the end.” – Clare

When was your favourite time together?
“I think now. It’s just lovely, just the two of us here together,
I’m really relishing this time and I’m thankful for it.” – Clare
“All the time.” – Ted

What do you love most about each other?
“She looks after me all the time. I’m always well fed.” – Ted
“He’s very easy to live with; he’s so thoughtful and considerate.” – Clare

What are your secrets to a long lasting marriage?
“Do as you’re told all the time,” *cheeky grin* “we’ve never done anything that either of us didn’t want to do.” – Ted
“Tolerance, on both sides. Everything has always been ‘ours,’ everything is shared and we’ve always made decisions together.” – Clare

What has been your most valuable lesson learned from marriage?
“Tolerance, again, and I hope we’ve set a good example for our family to follow.”
