81 years together - level 1

81 years together - level 1

02-12-2013 14:00

A man and a woman love each other. They get married. They come from Connecticut. They move to New York. They start to live together there. It happens in 1932.

It is 2013 now and they are still together. They are together for 81 years. It is a long time. They celebrate this. They are the longest married couple in the USA.

It is not only romantic when you are married. People are different. They have problems. You learn to respect each other.

Difficult words: each other (she loves him and he loves her), get married (to become man and wife), couple (two people who are together).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
