If you ask Glenda Cullenane, the secret to a long and happy marriage is laughter and trust — and so far it’s worked for her, after celebrating her 50th wedding anniversary with husband Gary.
The couple were married on January 4, 1964, at Seymour’s Christ Church on Anzac Ave.
‘‘It was a beautiful day and I loved my beautiful flowers,’’ Glenda said.
Glenda, who grew up in Seymour, met her future husband at a dance at the Seymour VRI Hall on April 18, 1958.
Gary, who had moved to the region from Western Australia, was in the Army and stationed at Puckapunyal and was out with friends to celebrate his 18th birthday.
The rest, as they say, is history.
‘‘They said it would never last .
For Gary and Glenda, reaching the 50-year milestone was thanks to a mix of honesty and fun.
‘‘Be honest with each other, trust each other and have lots of laughter,’’ Glenda said.
‘‘We’ve been very fortunate, we just love each other and it’s been a wonderful journey.’’
Although they now live in Perth, the couple return to Seymour several times a year to visit friends and Glenda’s sister, June Liverton, her brother, Geoff Neal and her son, Jason, who lives in Kilmore.
The couple celebrated their anniversary in Perth with a party with 80 friends and family members, including their three children, Melissa, Joanne and Jason and their two grand-daughters, Amaya, 21 months and Sienna, five weeks.
