  英国夫妇携手78年: “每天都要拌拌嘴”

  lifetime lovers frank and anita milford have reportedly become britain's longest-married living couple after celebrating their 78th wedding anniversary.

  lifetime lovers frank and anita milford have reportedly become britain's longest-married living couple after celebrating their 78th wedding anniversary.

  the pair met as teenagers at a dance in plymouth, southern england, in 1926 and married two years later.

  asked for the secret of their enduring union, frank milford, 98, a retired dock worker, said: "we don't always see eye to eye and we do have a small argument every day.

  "but that comes and goes. we are always here for each other."

  his 97-year-old wife added: "the key is give and take and lots of laughter."

  with their relationship as strong as ever, the couple hope to beat the record for britain's longest-ever marriage of 80 years, set by percy and florence arrowsmith. percy arrowsmith died last year.

  "there's every chance we could break that record," anita milford said.

  "these days marriages don't last long. a lot of people get married with the idea that if it doesn't work out there's no worry, but we can't understand that."

  the couple, who lived in a bungalow in the st budeaux area of plymouth until last year when they moved into a nursing home.

  elaine clarke, a senior care assistant at the warwick park nursing home, said of the couple: "it is very rare to see something like this. they are always by each other's side."

  anita milford was in bed for 10 days recently after falling ill and her husband stayed with her the whole time, clarke said.

  "they are still very much in love."

  the world's longest marriage on record is 86 years, set by two couples -- sir temulji bhicaji nariman and lady narima in india and were married in 1853 and us couple lazarus rowe and molly webber, who tied the knot in 1743.















  a pair of human skeletons lie in an eternal embrace at an neolithic archaeological dig site near mantova, italy.

  archaeologists in italy have discovered a couple buried 5,000 to 6,000 years ago, hugging each other.

  "it's an extraordinary case," said elena menotti, who led the team on their dig near the northern city of mantova.

  "there has not been a double burial found in the neolithic period, much less two people hugging."

  menotti said she believed the two, almost certainly a man and a woman although that needs to be confirmed, died young because their teeth were mostly intact and not worn down.

  "i must say that when we discovered it, we all became very excited. i've been doing this job for 25 years. i've done digs at pompeii, all the famous sites," she said.

  "but i've never been so moved because this is the discovery of something special."

  a laboratory will now try to determine the couple's age at the time of death and how long they had been buried.









  The jubilant moment a relieved groom found his wedding ring after he lost it in a river has been captured on camera.


  Richard Ford's cherished platinum band slipped off his finger while he was paddleboarding with a group of friends along the River Tame, in Tamworth, Staffordshire, on July 14.


  The 30-year-old, from Tamworth, who got married last August to primary school teacher Jen, also 30, only discovered the ring was missing when he had travelled half-a-mile down the river.


  Richard and his friends then spent 24 hours scouring the bottom of the river bed to try and find it. Richard, a joiner, explained said: 'We were on the river when I realised it was missing. I was devastated - I'm not into jewellery, but it is so special to me, it felt like I had lost part of my soul.


  'That afternoon three of us went out with snorkels and searched for hours and hours, but we couldn't find it. 'Someone had been taking photos and by checking them all, managed to pinpoint the area where I lost the ring, as in one shot I was wearing it and the next I wasn't.'


  'So on the Monday night a group volunteered to help me look again. I was desperate to find it. I hollowed out a bucket and put perspex in the bottom of it and I lay face-first on my paddleboard with a T-shirt around my head and my head in the bucket looking into the water.'


  During the search, his friend Neil Myers, 30, found the ring under a rock and decided to film Richard's reaction to his discovery.


  The footage - which has gone viral on YouTube with thousands of hits - shows Richard frantically searching for the ring by lying face-down on his paddleboard and using a hollowed out bucket to scour the riverbed.


  Neil can be heard saying: 'Rich, what is it you’re doing? Get your head out of the bucket.' He than adds: 'What is it you’re looking for? Does it look like that?' as he then produces the ring to a stunned Richard.


  The relieved husband leaps up from his paddleboard and throws his arms in the air shouting 'yes' in celebration as if he has just won a gold medal at the Olympics.'


  The 1.37 minute clip then shows Richard putting the ring back on his finger before hugging his friends and shaking their hands saying: 'Thank you, I'm indebted to you forever.' Richard said of the find and his subsequent online fame: 'I couldn’t believe it, I really didn’t think I'd see it again, it was a million to one chance.
