The couple, who has been together for 36 years, looks forward to many more happy years.
“On this 9th day of July we are doing the one thing that we have never done and that is become one,” they said.
“Soulmates — two halves of the same soul joining together in life’s journey. As our 36-year journey continues, may our love continue to grow deeper with each year to come. There is only one happiness in life — to love and be loved.”
