Ralph Kohler is 104 years old, and his wife Dorothy Kohler is 103 years old. Together, they are known as the 104-year-old couple. The 16th of September marks their wedding anniversary, and this year marked 86 happy years of marriage for the happy couple!
Over the course of those many years, the couple’s love fostered the growth of a large and lovely family that included three children, six grandkids, seven great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.
In the year 1935, the happy couple tied the knot in Tekamah, Nebraska. Dorothy was just 17 years old whereas Ralph had already reached the age of 18 at the time. Just a pair of young youngsters that are madly in love with one other.
Because the official at the court believed that the two were too young to be married, the couple first had their request for a marriage license refused. However, the pair just moved to a different location to exchange their vows.
Dorothy and Ralph believe that “togetherness” is the most important factor in achieving happiness during one’s whole life.
They both had their own unique interests, but they decided to take an interest in the activities that the other enjoyed. Because of this, they would be able to partake in each of the interests jointly.
For instance, ballroom dancing is something that Dorothy loves doing, whereas Ralph likes to shoot clay targets.
After getting married, they made the decision to continue participating in both of their favorite pastimes.
Ralph also noted how peacefully he and Dorothy get along most of the time as “perhaps a cutting remark every once in a while, but it didn’t stay.”
