Morrie, 103, and Betty Markoff, 100, have been together for nearly eight decades.
In an age where almost half of all marriages will end in divorce, the Markoff’s know that their type of love is rare.
“We’re very lucky,” Morrie recently told Paul Laity of The Guardian from their Los Angeles home.
The 100-year-old couple – still married, still going strong. I wrote about the Markoffs, wonderful people https://t.co/af3negLPEJ

And while Morrie said there’s no ‘secret’ to his long-standing relationship – “the best I can wish you is our luck”, he said – there’s one peculiar thing about their marriage.
In their 78 years together, Morrie has not once uttered the phrase ‘I love you’ to his wife Betty.
