The Louisiana Family Forum is celebrating the 2018 Longest Married Couple in Louisiana. The reigning champions, Lawrence and Varrie Player will be celebrating their 83rd anniversary this year. Family Forum President Gene Mills says they get new applicants every year.
“We’re in the search for the top ten longest known married couples. We want to honor the longest married, and we want to acknowledge the other ten, so this contest is renewed and refreshed every year.”
The forum celebrates each year’s top ten couples by passing on their stories. Mills says it’s easy to submit yours…
“Best thing to do is contact our office or go to our website and submit your information because there is a real possibility that they could be in line for a special celebration.”
The Family Forum honors the year’s top ten married couples during national marriage week, February 7th to 14th. Mills says over the years, couples have shared some great advice for keeping to “till death do us part”…
“I think it gives us an opportunity to reflect on what got them to the finish line.”
The deadline for submission is February 7th.
