As for what's keeping them stay so strong - they say that they still have daily squabbles.

"Not big rows, just the odd cross word. As far as I'm concerned, it's healthy," The Times quoted Anita, as saying.

However, as well as a little argument, "a little romance" is also essential.

"It's our golden rule," Mrs Milford said.

Couples these days don't last long because they often don't take enough time for each other. There isn't enough respect - love is about give and take. Our advice to young couples would be to make time for a little romance every day," she added.

Frank, a retired dockyard worker, said: "To win over your sweetheart you need a dose of old-fashioned chivalry and don't let your standards slip."

Their son, Frank Jnr, 74, said: "They spend most of their time together, with Dad almost completely deaf and blind, so it's difficult for him. Mum is a chatterbox and nothing has changed there."
