KSNT News asked senior couples at Thornton independent living what their secret is to a long-lasting relationship. 

The answers came down to friendship. 

“Just care for each other you know but if something’s wrong with him I know and he knows it with me too, said Thelma Burgoon. 

She has been married to Alvin Burgoon for over 50 years. 

“Be willing to accept the good and the bad because it sure in the hell isn’t going to be good all the time,” said Donald Sterbenz. 

He and his wife Patsy have been married for 66 years. 

“I would say be good friends first of all,” said Patsy Sterbenz.
