When I met and interviewed these two last night I asked them what the secret to 70 years of marriage was. Maury replied: “yes ma’am!” and chuckled while casting the sweetest smile over to his bride of 70 years. “Oh yeah–and cheap wine” she said with a smile.
These two have been celebrating at The Melting Pot Littleton for years on their anniversary (and even some birthdays along the way). As a matter of fact, they’ve celebrated their 50th, 60th, 65th and 70th anniversaries there with family. They love the restaurant-especially the chocolate fondue! It is a very special place to them and something they look forward to every year.
It all stared in Souix City, Iowa at an indoor skating ring. Esther asked Maury to skate. He said no. But there was a miscommunication. He thought she asked if he was there on a date. His friend clarified and maury skated on after her to solidify his future.
The couple have two children, 4 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
And they are as adorable as you can imagine.
Looking forward to seeing you both there again next year to celebrate your 71st anniversary!
