Diamond Couple Celebrate Sixtieth Anniversary

Thursday October 10 2013




THE secret to this couple's 60-year marriage is that they simply 'get on together'.

Peter Lee, 80, and Victoria Lee, 79, celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary on October 4 with a family meal and a few days in Scarborough.

The Ward Green husband and wife met in Bradford when they were teenagers and started courting not long after.

"I'd just come out of the army and was 21 and Victoria was 20. We got married in Bradford register office because in those days we had no money," said Peter.

"It's hard to say what the secret is to a happy marriage, we just seem to get on together and talk, and we have a lot of things in common such as working in the garden, things like that."

The couple, of Genn Lane, have five children - Angela, Tony, Aileen, Mark and Kirk - along with 11 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.
