The photoshoot is the most heartwarming thing we've ever seen...
As the wedding vows go...

However, not all marriages stick strictly to their vows.

The statistics aren't great...
via: ShutterstockFigures show that the average U.S. marriage only lasts around 7 years... Which doesn't really give a couple much time to fully commit to their wedding vows.
However, some couples are in it for the long run...

They experience lifes ups and down together.

One married couple has recently gone viral for this exact reason...

Marvin and Lucille Stone are one of those couples who have truly stood the test of time.
via: KHGIThe pair, who are eighty-eight and eighty-one respectively, have just celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.
The couple first tied the knot in 1960 at a small Lutheran Church in Sterling, Nebraska.

Their wedding day was everything they could have imagined.

He was the only one that cried," Lucille added. "My mother beamed and they both thought Marvin was just perfect, and that does help when your parents like the person that you’re marrying."
According to Marvin, the pair are a match made in heaven.

6 decades later, and their love still remains as strong as ever."We don’t always agree but we have the main focus that we’ve always had, so it just kind of moves along," Marvin told KHGI-TV. "We have had similar values and so it has worked out pretty well and, I don't know, we never spent any time considering separating."
Lucille says the couple have always taken their wedding vows seriously.
via: Getty Images"You do what you have to do and by no means have we been perfect in our marriage. We’ve had arguments. We’ve had disagreements, but on the big things we’re pretty much on the same track."
In honour of their 60th anniversary, the couple decided to have a photoshoot.
