Couple In Their 90s Who Met On Valentine’s Day In 1948 Renewed Their Vows After 72 Incredible Years Of Marriage(video)

In addition to renewing their wedding vows on Valentine's Day, a Long Island couple who met on the holiday in 1948 honored their enduring love.

On February 14, 2023, Morty Steinberg, 93, and his wife, Alice Steinberg, 91, renewed their vows and declared their intention to remain wed in their new residence at Encore Luxury Living at the Jericho Turnpike. On February 4, 1951, they exchanged vows in Washington Heights.

In their seven decades of marriage, the Steinbergs were fortunate to have a son and two daughters, who together produced six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. The pair said that the reason they have been together for so long is because they are each other's greatest friends.

When Morty was an 8-year-old child, he remembered meeting Alice with her mother for the first time at a deli in the Bronx. Years later, he discovered that Alice lived only a block away from him, but they had never spoken before and had finally reconnected at a Valentine's Day party.

Morty realized he was done looking at women when he spotted Alice at the party. They went on their first date to the movies after Valentine's Day. From then, their romance developed into a happy marriage.

Morty and Alice's union demonstrates that love still exists, as data from 2022 indicates that the divorce rate has dropped from 4 per 1,000 individuals in 2000 to 2.7 now.

According to Bride, the typical American marriage lasts eight years. Incompatibility, which can vary from differences in their personal, political, or even religious convictions, is the primary cause of divorce in the majority of cases. Because they are unable to accept their partner's faults, some relationships end in divorce.

According to Morty, his marriage to Alice has gone through numerous stages, but they have always made sure to grow as a couple together, not apart. Alice concurred and added that healthy relationships flourish when both partners are ready to "blend together" while yet becoming as individuals.

Prior to moving to Jericho and establishing their life there for almost 40 years, Morty and Alice lived in Queens during the early years of their marriage. The family man established a commercial sign company, which he ran for 39 years until his retirement in 2022, to support his wife and children. Alice, on the other hand, was a music instructor for young children.

The pair entered a retirement community in June 2022, starting a new chapter in their life as husband and wife. While many of their friends have lost their wives or died away, Morty and Alice consider themselves fortunate that they are still able to live together.

"Now, we're the best of friends. According to Alice, 72 years is a considerable amount of time.

The fundamental component of their long-lasting marriage, according to Alice, is love, but they also make sure that nothing insignificant disrupts their union.

Alice told Eyewitness News ABC7NY, "You have to have love, the fundamental, and then you have to look away for a lot of things." The bride continued, "Sometimes you have to write little love notes," and Morty completely agreed with her.

One of their daughters said that the reason their parents' union has endured this long is because their father constantly pays attention to their mother.
