Couple celebrates 75th wedding anniversary
One couple in Tifton is celebrating 75 years of marriage.
The Parrs celebrated Wednesday at Southern Care Assisted Living.
The couple never had an actual wedding, they eloped and have been together ever since.
Mrs. Parr says she knew early on that Mr. Parr was the man she was going to marry... she jokes there is one thing about him that made her know he was the one.
"As long as he makes my toes tingle when I see him," said Wylene Parr. "And they laugh at that because they think that funny for an elderly lady to have tingling toes"
Wednesday's party was a surprise for the Parrs, but they say they are glad they can set a good example of marriage for their family.
Mrs. Parr says she believes modern day couples can have long successful marriages if they just believe in each other and never give up on love.
