Today's required viewing is courtesy of the New York Times' "Vows" franchise. The amazing love story is of Lewis Duckett (right) and Billy Jones—who have been together for more than 46 years. The couple adopted a son and now have grandchildren. They were married a little more than three months ago in The Riverside Church of New York City.
"We were formally introduced by a mutual friend," said Billy Jones, MD, a psychiatrist. "We sort of clicked and enjoyed being with each other. And before either one of us knew it ... we were in love."
Dr. Jones was deployed to Vietnam soon after they met. The couple began exchanging letters "almost every day," said Lewis Duckett. "We wrote in code and changed genders so nothing could be interpreted to 'out' him. But that's a new word they didn't have back then," he added.
"For most of our 46 years together, I don't know where I stop and he begins," said Dr. Jones. "It's been that kind of blending."
So beautiful. Their story is probably the epitome of 'a love for the ages.' Watch it AFTER THE JUMP ...
