Couple use the same recycled Valentine's Day card for 70 years - Telegraph: "When 17-year-old Harry Ward presented his sweetheart Doris with a Valentine's Day card as he boarded a train to join the wartime effort on February 14, 1941, he must have been fairly confident his affections would be requited.

After all the couple had been dating since they met in a Bristol cafe three months earlier.

But little can he have imagined that 70 years on, not only would he still be happily married to Doris, but that every year she would present him with the very same card he gave her at the railway station that Valentine's day."

Funny because I just read a very similar story about a couple in New York, even to the kiss goodnight part.
