They've seen a lot of things together, from the Great Depression to Covid Now, it's gotten to a point where the two of them just cannot do without each other.
Hubert and June Malicote have been married for 79 years, which is a significant achievement. But the two of them are about to hit an even bigger milestone.
They were both born in July 1922, meaning they will both turn 100 soon.
Hubert and June were raised in rural Kentucky, according to WLWT. Their friendship blossomed after they first met at a church in Ohio where they had moved to find jobs. Within no time, they realized they had feelings for each other, thus beginning a beautiful relationship.
After they tied the knot on June 8, 1943, Hubert had to go with the Navy to Honolulu in Hawaii for two years during World War II. When he returned home, he recalled that June was waiting at the train station for him. Soon, they built a life for themselves in Hamilton, Ohio, reports TODAY. They now have three kids, seven grandchildren, and eleven great-grandkids.
As for their birthday, since June's birthday is on July 13 and Hubert's is on July 23, they will have a joint celebration, including a church service in their backyard.
Hubert and June Malicote — they’re both turning 100 next month — have been married since they were 20 and said they have never had a quarrel. https://t.co/ZkFOBjleHs— TODAY (@TODAYshow) June 30, 2022
The couple's secret to spending so much time even after being married is that they don't argue. "We've never quarreled," Hubert shared. "We've never had one quarrel."
"We didn't go through life without problems, but we would never do anything to hurt each other," Hubert added. "If there's controversy, you might have to walk away for a couple of minutes."
Along with that, they also make sure to spend time with one another every night. They eat together and watch a movie before retiring to bed with a goodnight kiss always, which they have never missed. This routine continues despite June's inability to communicate due to several strokes she suffered.
"I put Mom in her wheelchair next to where Dad is sitting, and they hold hands and say goodnight to each other," their 70-year-old daughter shared. "Then, in the morning, they are so happy to see each other. They greet each other with huge smiles."
They've seen a lot of things together, from the Great Depression to COVID, and now it's gotten to a point where the two of them just cannot do without each other. “It’s kind of like if we aren’t together, the team is broken,” Hubert revealed.
True love really does exist, doesn't it?
