‘Every day’s like Valentine’s Day,’ say couple married for 75 years

A COUPLE with a combined age of 200 believe the secret to a blissful marriage is to treat every day like it’s Valentine’s Day.

Harold, 101, and 99-year-old Renee Gaze have never as much as squabbled during 75 years of marriage... well, almost never.

The couple have been inseparable since they met at a holiday camp in 1938.

Harold, a keen pianist, who lives with Renee in a retirement home in Westerham, Kent, revealed the secret of their perfect relationship ahead of their 75th anniversary next month.

He said: “We’ve never really made a big fuss about Valentine’s Day. Instead, we try to make every day like Valentine’s Day.

“We just love each other. Simple as that. Always have. And we’ve never had an argument or a disagreement.”

Renee added: “Well almost never. We’ve had a wonderful, happy life together.

“We’ve been very lucky to have always been comfortably off and have been able to do the things we enjoyed doing. And of course we’ve managed to stay healthy.”

Harold, a retired shopkeeper, met Renee at a Methodist holiday camp in Sidestrand, Norfolk.

They wed in 1940 and had one child. They now have three grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren Harold keeps active by entertaining other residents at Westerham Place care home with nightly piano performances.

Renee said: “He’s got a bit of a fan club.”

Care home manager Ami Collman said: “Their unending love and devotion for each other is an inspiration to us all.”
