Kindness may be the secret to a long-lasting marriage as well as a long life for a North Carolina couple who just celebrated their 100th and 103rd birthdays, which are just seven days apart, according to a local news station.

D.W. Williams, 103, and Willie Williams, 100, have been married for 82 years. Their families threw them a party at a local Baptist church to mark their milestone birthdays, Charlotte's WSOC-TV reported.
