Earlier this week, Wisconsin Family Council announced its inaugural inductees into the Wisconsin Marriage Hall of Fame. Eleven couples were inducted, with Hiram and Gretta Brown of Rice Lake having the distinction of being the longest-married couple at seventy-eight years later this month. All the inductees have been married at least sixty-five years. The couples’ stories and their best marriage advice is available online at wifamilycouncil.org. Each February more couples will be inducted into this unique hall of fame.
We started this Hall of Fame to honor both the institution of marriage and individual marriages that have gone the distance. These couples show us all that marriage to one person for a lifetime is not only possible but well worth it. This has been not only a fun initiative for us, but also one we believe is timely as the world keeps saying marriage isn’t important or relevant. That’s a lie we can’t afford to believe.
