Always And Forever Matrimony-dom: This Couple Proved Black Love Can Be Lasting

- By Bossip Staff Categories: A "Lil Positivity", Congratulations, Coupled Up

Herbert And Zelmyra Fisher

Last year we told you about the world’s longest married couple Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher who were signed up on Twitter as @longestmarried and participated in a Valentine’s Day chat with fellow “tweethearts” where they dispensed relationship advice.

We were sad to learn that Herbert Fisher died this year on February 27 at the age of 105, just three months shy of the couples’ 87th anniversary (May 13th). 103-year-old Zelmyra is still living.

Check out more pictures of the happy couple:

    You know what? That would be a dream come true. To find a partner to live, grow old and die with. There isnt a whole lot more a man can ask for in life. Living and Dying in Love!

  • TrulyGolden

    This couple along with my grandparent (married 52 years) give me hope that my marriage can be long lasting. This was truly a blessed couple to even live as long as they have, now these are people I would take advice. Experts in their own rights through experience.

  • Wow!!!

    It’s sad when you can have a post where the entire blog has something nice to say!!! The devil is very busy these days and for the ones with the negative things to say, Satan is working on you for sure! They are indeed a beautiful couple, and they both look good for their age in the pics above. RIP (husband)!!!!

    • Wow!!!

      Sorry I meant to say “can’t have a post”

    • http://www.aol.com Ben

      Too true and sad some people have no respect for themselves but be warned that many white people are now posting racist posts on black blogs you see it on black voices, MN and essence.

  • http://Bossip.com Eddie

    We need to see more of this.

  • ReallyNow

    Great story…they don’t make black women like Zelmyra anymore.

  • MR.MAKE.YA.FEELGOOD.(always read the fine print)

    This is one of those stories where we should leave a comment even if you just say “nice story”. That is if you want more stories like this as opposed to the race baiting ones.
