The couple also stresses the importance of open communication and never letting problems fester. “We always talked it out,” said Faye.
Laughter and companionship were also important to the pair, as well as sharing common interests.
“We loved to laugh,” Faye said. “We played cards, we played dominoes, we had a regular poker game. I did not even think of divorce. Murder, a few times, but…” Faye said jokingly with a laugh.
And Kenneth talked about how faithfulness was always a key to their successful marriage.
“We never even talked about getting rid of each other, it was always the other way around. Sticking together,” he said.
