Gert and Augie Michko live in Waymart, Pennsylvania. Gert, 70, is a retired textile worker, and Augie, 73, is a musician and retired electrician and plumber. They raised three children together.
He says: It's just faith and trust. And we do things together. Right from the start, we both thought, Once you're married, you're married. That's the way our parents were, and we just followed suit.
She says: Love is what carried us through. We didn't do that much in our lifetime; we just worked. And marriage was something we were committed to…We've had rough times, but I wouldn't want anybody else.
