For richer for poorer, in sickness and in health: Couple who has beaten cancer twice and faced poverty marks 47 YEARS of marriage with a joyful shoot despite both battling severe illnesses
A couple celebrating 47 years of marriage has paid tribute to their lengthy love story with a sweet photo shoot, while revealing how union has lasted for so many years, despite the duo facing two cancer battles, battling other illnesses, and a brush with poverty.
Wanda and Marvin Brewington, from Raleigh, North Carolina, college sweethearts with two grown daughters, took part in a photo shoot taken by one of their children, Amber Robinson, a wedding photographer, in celebration of their milestone anniversary, and the resulting images have quickly earned the romantic couple a place in the viral hall of fame.
The shoot is unbelievably glamorous, showing Wanda, 67, in a full-length rose gold sequined gown, while Marvin, 70, cuddles her in a dapper suit. And not only does the pair look sharp and dressed to the nines, they also look blissfully in love.
