Tri-State couples offer advice on Valentine’s Day

Local News

(WEHT)- Is there a secret to a long, happy marriage? Perhaps so, perhaps not. But two Tri-State area couples: the Knights and the Haydens think they know a thing or two about marriage.

Donald and Mary Teresa Hayden have been together since 1957, have seven children, 19 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren. Donald Hayden says “you have your ups and downs as the years go by. That’s marriage, you just have to work together and not let these downs get you too far down.”

While they’ve been married for 20 years, the William and Bertha Knight may not have been an obvious fit in their younger days. Bertha Knight remembers “I spent my life as a church organist, in church. And he spent his life out here on bikes and everything else but church.”

The Knights celebrated Valentine’s Day by organizing a party at the Senior Community Center of Owensboro-Daviess County.
