Ninety-one years after meeting, they're still in love.

Ron and Eileen Everest never knew a world without each other. They were born in the same hospital – he in 1921, she in 1922 – and were friends practically from birth.

As 4-year-olds, they posed as bride and groom in a pretend wedding at a carnival. Later, barely out of their teens, they married for real.

And this year, 87 years after that old photo was taken – the one they fondly refer to as their first wedding rehearsal – the British couple are celebrating their platinum anniversary after 70 years of marriage.
