Twitter Files: Black Couple Who Has Been Married 85 Years Gives Relationship Advice via Twitter!!

- By Bossip Staff

This is what we like to see…black love long and strong!!!

Meet ‘America’s Tweethearts’ – the world’s longest married couple who are set to give away their secrets to a happy union on Valentine’s Day. Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher, who tied the knot a staggering 85 years ago, will answer the 14 best questions posed via micro-blogging site Twitter. The Guinness World Record holders, from North Carolina, US, exchanged vows back in 1924 and have five children, ten grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. Despite their years, avid baseball fan Herbert, 104, and 102-year-old Zelmyra are happy to embrace modern technology to share their golden tips with younger generations. The one-off Twitter chat – organised by movie streaming site http://www.blinkbox.com – will take place live on February 14. Photo taken in 1949 on the couple’s 25th anniversary.

Wow, they really have these people who have been on this Earth for more than a century on Twitter. SMH.

  • FEFE M-RODGERS

    Hopefully they will inspire people to be married and monogamous. Today some women would rather be a sidepiece to a married man instead of having him all to their self.

    It is great to see black people living this long and being married this long is just icing on the cake.

  • TheOriginalBlkBarbie

    That is sooo sweet! God bless them…

    …but if I need relationship advice I can always go to my parents who have been married 25+ years and are still going strong. I’ve never seen anything but love between them.

    That’s pretty crazy that they’re up on Twitter. I’m not even on Twitter and I’m in my early twenties! I barely gave in to Facebook. Social networking sites kind of creep me out because I know that people stalk and are all up in other people’s business on there and I have experienced it myself so I’m leery.

    Anyways…CONGRATULATIONS!

    That is great and i will say my mom grandparents where married for 69 years before he passed and then she passed a year later, maybe from a broken heart but they almost made 70 years of strong black love! What is so amazing aboutis is now strong they must have been to survive thru all the racism and crap , i just think of what they must have went thru but they still stayed together and from what my mom says raised 9 kids , never seperated and no outside kids!!

    Now, I’ll listen to them!!!

    You got ALL these people out here offering relationship advice and they can’t even keep or maintain a stable & healthy relationship their damn selves… Or even if they’re in one it’s f*cked up & dysfunctional… SMMFH

    I ONLY take heed to advice from folks that come across as intelligent, sound sensible and/or have experience in the area that I may have a question about…

    Damn, they’ve seen it all…

    Thats beautiful! Real love! Love!

    “Teacher,” he asked, “which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and the most important commandment. The second most important commandment is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ Matthew 22:36-39

    LOVE!!!!!!
