They met at a little chapel in England and the rest was history.
Roy and Olwyn Goodman celebrated their 69th wedding anniversary today Tuesday, March 24.
The couple which is loved and adored by many will be celebrating with a fancy dinner surrounded by family and friends.
Roy and Olwyn have two loving sons Dave and Ian, 27 grandchildren and eight great grand children in their close family.
The couple were engaged for 18 months before they got married at 19 and 20 and have had a long and happy marriage.
"We didn't have relationships before this one, you just didn't do that back then, this was our first love," Olwyn said.
The couple moved to Australia in 1971, coming out as ten pound poms.
"We were on a ship called the Australis for 28 days that brought us to Australia," Roy said.
Olwyn had relatives in the country and a doctor had told them that Australia's climate would be better for their youngest son.
On what makes their marriage successful, it's all about give and take, Roy said.
"I give and she takes," he joked.
On a more serious note Roy said it was because they were best friends and could talk about a lot of different things.
Showing what an amazing husband Roy can be, he bought Olwyn a beautiful diamond ring to celebrate the anniversary.
"But we are aiming for 70 years," Olwyn said.
The couple said they had been through many ups and downs, including hiding in bomb shelters in England through World War II, and they have lived in the Lithgow area for many years.

"They have an incredible family," daughter in-law Lynda Black said.
