Couple Who Had Served In WWII Together, Married For 70 Years, Died On The Same Day

Few love stories have survived the test of time and left their unique mark on humanity like the one you'll read below.

A successful relationship requires much more than physical attraction and intimate desires.

According to Andrea Mathews, a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Certified Counseling Supervisor, and a National Certified Counselor:

"Being in love does not guarantee that a relationship will work. Relationships also require compatibility and relationship skills on the part of both parties. But the "in love" requirement is a must. Relationships are not easy for they bring us to the deepest parts of ourselves. Therefore, being in love must be an aspect of any healthy long-term commitment and being sure that it is love, therefore, is an intensely important first step."

Meredith Hansen, Psy. D, a clinical psychologist who specializes in couples, premarital and newlywed counseling adds:

"Healthy adult love exists when both partners are emotionally interdependent; meaning that both partners love one another, care for one another, desire physical closeness with one another, but respect each other enough to have their own identities as well."

Long-term relationships require dedication and effort to make love last. Both partners need to be willing to give 120 percent.

Mudita Rastogi, Ph.D., a licensed marriage and family therapist in Arlington Heights, Ill, notes:

"Your interests, opinions, and experiences can change as you grow. But if you share the same core belief systems, you will have a platform from which to build a strong relationship."

The following story is an example of such love that lasted for seven decades:

While they were studying in Philadelphia, Preble Staver, born on October 17, 1921, and Isabell Whitney, born on October 31 of the same year, met on a blind date.

Since their first date, these two youngsters knew that they were destined to go through life hand by hand. When the US entered World War II, they both signed up.

While Preble joined as a Marine and ended up receiving a Bronze Star, Isabell was a Navy nurse in Maryland. Five months after the war ended, the couple reunited and married on February 15, 1946.

Their life was full of love, and they were determined to face all difficulties together.

After the war, Preble worked as a lobbyist and banker, so the couple had to move a lot around a lot of places in the US, including Virginia, Florida, and South Carolina.

According to one of their five kids, the 63-year-old Laurie Staver Clinton, Preble was "a tall, outgoing man with a strong, 'larger than life' personality" and Isabell was described as"[her] heart" and somebody who "taught [her] how to be a kind person, how to be a compassionate person."

In 1975, their son, Peter, died during the last football game of his high school senior year.

Watch the heart-melting story and celebration of their life together in the video below:

  1. I am one of those people who said, “I’ll never call a psychic or a magician or whatever” to help me with my problems – least of all my love problems, but I reached the point where I knew I needed some guidance, and I’m so glad I found this man called dr.ajeghe. When I nearly lost David in one of our stupid,fights (he broke up with me), I thought I had lost everything.i cry all day and think that he will never come back to me again.i read so many testimony about Dr. ajeghe love spell,how he help to bring back ex lover back.I quickly email him.and also get back my husband with his love spell. And when I was at my most desperate,he didn’t take advantage of me. You performed a very good service for a person in true need. I don’t know how you did it, or how this magic works, but all I know is, IT WORKS!! David my husband and I are happily back together, and I’ll always be grateful to dr.ajeghe email him for any kinds of help is very capable and reliable for help or WhatsApp him +2349069171173
