82 years of Marriage: Duranord and Jeanne Veillard an eternal love

Do you think true love exists? I confirm that “yes and yes”, sincere love exists through God. When love is sincere, it rhymes with respect and true feelings, it lasts and goes through the trials of time.
Duranord 108 years old and Jeanne 105 years old, a beautiful Haitian couple, reveals to everyone, like the couple Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher, that love lasts eternally. Some people rush into marriages, without real feelings, to follow the world. While others take the time to know each other and build the foundations of their home and their common lives. The loved one thus becomes a love, a friend, a confidant for life, who shares the joy and pains of existence. So take friends time, find your soul mate, the one God chose for you. The one who will understand you, support you, support you in good times, as in the worst. Love with whom we laugh, but also with whom we cry.
