The Telegraph Herald is launching a new series highlighting local couples who have been married for at least 50 years.

“Love that Lasts” will showcase one couple each week, sharing the story of their early days, their journey together and the secret to their longevity.

Do you know of a tri-state-area couple that we should feature? The only requirement is that they have been married for at least a half-century.
