Couple Celebrates 70 Years of Marriage

WESTON, Wis. (WAOW)--A couple formerly from Wisconsin is celebrating 70 years of marriage.

Dawn and Gilbert McMillan got married in Milwaukee in 1952 when they were both 19, and next month will mark their platinum anniversary.

The two have filled their life with love and laughter, and on Sunday the couple was honored by family members with a surprise party to commemorate their milestone.

Their advice to newlyweds is to practice communication.

"You've got to learn to get along I'm not always right she is not always right," Gilbert said. "You can't be stubborn, that's not gonna work, but she is the best wife in the world."

At the party, the two shared stories about their decades of marriage.
