Advanced Love: Iris and Leonard Kaplan

g63a7242Iris: We’ve been together 70 years. We met through friends in the city and I got him a date with my boyfriend’s sister. Then, I liked him and I called him up for dinner, and three months later and we were engaged. It was love at first sight.
The secret to staying together for so long is an attraction that starts in the very beginning and stays there.

We haven’t had it that difficult, we never really fight. We’ve never had a big fight. Have we?

Leonard: No.

Iris: No, never. We get along really well.

Leonard: Yeah, I do what she wants!

Iris: My father told him the secret to a good marriage with me would be to do everything I want (chuckles), always say yes, and he does! It’s a long time. I’m more in love than ever because we are together all the time, we are never apart. We are absolutely always together and we really never been apart.

    Sounds like a very selfish relationship to me.

      You’re very judgmental about people you don’t even know.

    Can I spell “Joyous Envy”? Because I look and read about a 70 year marriage and think: What a joyous event you shared! Happiness is where you find it….so Bravo to the Kaplans….Love is precious, when found NEVER LET IT GO!

    I’ve been married 3 times , live in 4 different country’s , mostly because of my relationships and was happy in all of them , but never really in love !
    5 years ago and thousand miles away I find love of my life . Being 50 years old and base on my own experience , I agree: that if you lucky to experience LOVE , then you with your partner all the time , and you love everything about your relationship .
