Ralph and Tillie Lee Pullin are one of the longest-living married couples in Georgia, and it’s getting them plenty of unexpected attention. The Pullins recently celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary, which made them one of the longest-living married couples in Georgia. The McDonough, Georgia couple met in 1936, and Mr. Pullin said he’ll never forget that day. “She had to sit on part of my knee! And that got my attention like a live wire,” he told Good Day Atlanta.
Oh, I’m sure it did, Mr. Pullin!
The Pullins got married two years after they met and are proud parents to eight children, 16 grandchildren, 33 great-grandchildren, one great-great grandchild and another one on the way!
President Obama even commemorated the wedding anniversary with the Pullins by sending a special letter of congratulations. But the Pullins aren’t looking for praise. They said the one thing that has kept them together is God.
“Our marriage was like the ocean,” Ralph explained. “I’m not trying to say big words, but you know how the ocean waves go up and down? At the bottom, God was there. And every time we hit bottom, God pushed us back up.”
And let the comment section say, “awwww”.
