A couple that has been happily married for over 80 years turns 100 together.

When young June and Hubert were married in 1943, they had no notion that they would remain partners for at least another 80 years.


When June and Hubert first met at church when they were each 19 years old, they made the decision to live together. They simply knew they were meant to be together.
As a result, they moved to Hamilton, Ohio, after Hubert’s return from the war, where they eventually had three children. They currently have 11 great-grandchildren and seven grandkids.

Hubert and June Malicote, who will celebrate 100 this month, describe their basic but fortunate lives.

“We don’t get out very much. We enjoyed telling anecdotes about our days at the table when the kids were smaller, Hubert said to Today Parents. “We’ve lived a great life,”

Even weekly night dates were not planned. Simply put, they relished one other’s presence. They claim to have learned by experiencing everything from WWII to the Great Depression and Covid that what makes one happy in life is being appreciative for what they have and being surrounded by those they love.


And the answer is negative if you’re asking if they’ve ever gotten into a fight. Jo, their daughter, vouches for the assertion.
They clarify that while this does not imply they have never had disagreements, it does indicate they have resolved them. They choose to take a little rest instead of fighting.

Hubert remarked, “We didn’t have a perfect existence, but we would never do anything to damage one other. You might need to take a short break if there is a commotion, he noted. “Then you return and either shift the subject or resolve it.”

Given that they have been married for almost 80 years and are happy together, it would appear that this strategy is effective.

Since June has had many strokes in the past few years, she now has difficulty speaking. She still expresses her affection for her spouse, nevertheless, whenever she has the opportunity.

Every night, according to their daughter, they have supper together, watch an old western, and then kiss before going to bed.

According to Jo, she places Mom in her wheelchair next to Dad’s seat where they clasp hands and say goodnight to one another. Then, when they meet one another in the morning, they are overjoyed. They exchange warm smiles as they meet.


It’s incredible that some couples can coexist for such a long time. They actually find it impossible to think of their life without their companion.
