60 years of Christ-centred marriage

Meet Ruby and Harold Coleman, a beautiful couple in Rustburg, Virginia, who are still glowing with love for each other after 60 years of marriage. Not only have they stayed together all this time - an increasingly rare feat in today's era of cohabiting and quickie divorces - but Christ has been at the centre of it all.

The day it all began: December 16, 1952, the day of their wedding

Harold is a retired building contractor and Ruby was a stay-at-home mum, raising their five children.  They have spent their latter years raising cattle on their farm.

Harold spends a lot of time gardening.  He also gardens for other members of their church and for old people in the neighbourhood who can no longer do it themselves.  Any leftover crops they give to a local homeless shelter.

These beautiful pictures were taken by photographer Megan Vaughan at the request of the Colemans' daughter, Cindy, in celebration of their 60th wedding anniversary.  She says of her parents: "They are an amazing couple who I love with all my heart. They served as hard working Christian parents not only talking the talk, but walking the walk. I thank my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for having such wonderful parents and role models growing up."

The Colemans still enjoy reading the Bible together.

Perhaps that is why, after all these years, they are still so very much in love with each other
