Why do some marriages last for decades, while others barely make it past the wedding?
Frank and Marian Robertson would tell you there's no easy answer. Love, yes, but more than that—a willingness to be guided by love, to be changed by it... If Frank and Marian have a secret, that's it.
When they met in 1929, they realized they were destined to spend the rest of their lives together. However, wanting a life together and making one are two different things. And the obstacles they faced—parental disapproval, even tragedy—sometimes seemed too much to bear. But through it all, Frank and Marian shared a love that's lasted, a love that affects everyone in their family, right down to their great-granddaughter Hannah.
