Probably the sweetest thing I’ve read in a long time comes from yesterday’s Oregonian:
Eric Marcoux and Eugene Woodworth will celebrate 60 years together on June 13.
The couple met in Chicago in 1953. Woodworth was a ballet dancer, and Marcoux was just leaving a Trappist monastery.
Marcoux, 82, and Woodworth, 84, participate in Friendly House’s Gay and Grey program, and Marcoux has been a Buddhist teacher for 23 years.
The Oregonian caught up with the couple in their Northwest Portland home, which they share with their macaw, Big Bird, to learn their secrets to a healthy and happy partnership.
And if you know anybody at Starbucks- this couple deserves free lattes for life.
