A 103-year-old man and his 100-year-old wife have given young couples stellar advice on how to maintain a long, happy, and thriving marriage.

The pair cautioned young married couples against holding onto grudges and giving each other the silent treatment when angry.

The grandparents said they tied the knot when they were both teenagers and had only known each other for three months.

The two said they have been glued to each other for 82 years and their daughter admitted they share a love so deep the ocean would be jealous.

Willie told Steve Harvey during his night show that couples need to be kind and nice to each other at all times.

She added that guys need to learn how to sit and talk things over so they can find a solution to their problems.

“Get a good understanding of what you are doing and where you are going,” she said.

Her husband then insisted people do not need to have a big wedding to prove that they are married.

Willie stated that people rarely know how to tell right from wrong when they are young but as they grow old, they gain experience and become better at handling difficult situations.

She further said simplicity does it when it comes to marriage.
