“Expect 10% from someone that you love and give 90%, and you've got it made!” ALICE ROSENGREN

How do you keep a marriage alive and fulfilling for more than 65 years?  It’s not that hard, says Alice Rosengren, who has shared married life with husband Robert since September 24, 1949.  “Expect 10% from someone that you love and give 90%, and you've got it made!” she exclaims.

Actually maintaining a relationship for that length of time entails a little more than that, but first and foremost, are complimentary personalities.  And of course the right chemistry. 

Both Alice and Robert left home and learned to fend for themselves at an early age. While living in the town of Northfield, Robert, a young man of 21 years of age, drove a taxi cab.  One of his frequent stops was a particular cafe where Alice, a 17 year old waitress worked.  It didn't take long before he took an interest in the young woman, and kept returning to the cafe to see her.  “He chased me for six months and I let him catch me,” she laughs.  “He was asking for trouble and I definitely was trouble,” she adds. “But Robert was a little hot shot, too,” she chuckles.

Both young people had been on their own for some time and were ready to settle down.
