For a young, newlywed couple, an exciting and often unknown future is in store. Newlyweds Tommy and Sasha Newman, Valley City, have already made memories as a married couple that will last them a lifetime.

Willard Boyer claims to know the secret to staying married for 62 years. â€śItâ€™s easy,â€ť he said. â€śJust do everything Ma says,â€ť
Margaret Boyer was a bit less comic as she looked at her husband with a twinkle, â€śI just love being with him.â€ť
Willard has been married to his sweetheart Margaret since soon after he returned from World War II where he was on a PT boat. Margaret had just finished nursing school and was working in Elgin, N.D., as a registered nurse.
For Vicky and Terry Jones the secret of staying together for 28 years and happily married for 22 years is being able to understand each other.
Said Terry, â€śTo love and laugh. Youâ€™ve just got to work it out. Everything is not easy.â€ť
Said Vicky, â€śI feel it (the marriage) gets better every year.â€ť
Terry added, â€śIt feels like youâ€™re the right hand and the left hand. Each knows what the other is doing.â€ť
The couple owns Vickyâ€™s Viking Room, and Vicky is definitely the boss of the business.
