John and Celia House from Bournemouth, England, took the plunge 70 years ago while the two were serving together in the British Royal Navy. They got married in secret, despite any potential repercussions from their superiors. Today, they’re still hopelessly head-over-heels for each other.
The couple still got their spark on and look absolutely smitten.
“When she smiles, the whole world bursts into sunshine—and that I cannot resist,” says John. “He’s a real action man and I love him with all my heart,” says Celia.
So, what’s the secret to their enduring love?
“We speak to each other about everything. We haven’t got many secrets,” he said, before adding: “Not that I know of.” Naturally, Celia had a response lined up: “I’m not telling you. I’ll keep you guessing,” she said. Cue the laughter.
