LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Sunday was a special day for one Lexington couple. Charles and Anne Miller renewed their vows after they celebrated 80 years of marriage this past Friday.
The Rev. William Bell married the Millers on July 14, 1937. They were teenagers at the time, just 17- and 16-years old. They kept their marriage a secret for six months because they were living at home and still in school. Their first house cost them $400. They say the only time they were apart was while Charles served in the military.
The Millers credit their faith for keeping their marriage in tact all of these years. Charles Miller says he still drives his wife to church every Sunday and remembers their first anniversary like it was yesterday.
“The very first time, I feel that it’s so good. I am really rejoiced today, god is so good and he kept us together for 80 years, that’s a long time, but he kept us."
The Millers have two kids, eight grandkids and several great grandchildren to show for their eight decades of love.
