The Oldest Living Couple In The U.S. Shows Us What True Love Looks Like
We get to see what true love looks like thanks to Gabe Jacobs, who is a filmmaker living in Brooklyn. He filmed his grandparents who have been married for 80 years and are the oldest living couple in the U.S. We adore this video and hope you do too!
Here's what he wrote "My grandparents are incredible. Arthur is 105 (born 1912), Marcia is 100 (born 1917). Tomorrow marks the 80th year they have been married. They are one of the oldest living couples in The United States. Marcia can really only say "hello, hello" but she seems to have some sort of understanding of her surroundings (watch her crack up at Gideon's joke in the first clip). Arthur is a beautiful man and so incredibly in love with Marcia. You can tell how sad he is that she is can no longer communicate. Proud to have descended from these super humans."
Arthur Theodore Jacobs was born in August 19th, 1912. Marcia Fox Jacobs was born on June 25th, 1917. They met at the University of Wisconsin. Marcia was from New York and Arthur was from Hammond, Indiana. Arthur worked for the War Manpower Commission in Washington, DC during the second world war. He has a PHD in economics at the University of Michigan. Marcia was a director of social work at Hebrew Home For The Aged in Riverdale, NY. They lived for many years in Larchmont, NY and now live in Rye, NY.
