Louisiana Family Forum is once again looking for Louisiana’s “Longest Married Couple” to share their story of a lifetime commitment to marriage and family.
“Sharing these stories of life-long faithfulness encourages the next generation to understand that being happily married still happens and still lasts a lifetime. We are honored and obligated to communicate these stories of enduring love,” Gene Mills, President of Louisiana Family Forum, said. “Many have been told that marriage cannot last, that it is too difficult, but our longest married honorees demonstrate that being a ‘Covenant Keeper’ is a life-long commitment!”
The Top-10 Longest Married Couples will be honored by receiving an Official Statement of Special Recognition and will be entered into the LFF “Marriage Hall of Fame.”

Mills continues, “Marriage is a sacred covenant between a man and a woman. It’s not every day that you meet a couple married over 70 years, but when you do, there is something special, historical, and wonderful about that relationship!”
LFF congratulates Louisiana’s Longest Married Couple annually during National Marriage Week USA, Feb. 7th-14th, which is an effort “to strengthen individual marriages, reduce divorce, and build a marriage culture.”
Entries for couples married over 70 years must be submitted before February 7, 2018! Each couple should send their contact information and anniversary date to [email protected]. For more information or if you have questions, you can email us at the same email address or just call the LFF office at 800-606-6470.
