Prince Harry is set to marry former Suits actress Meghan Markle this coming Saturday.

To celebrate love and marriage, on Monday The Project heard from Kiwi couples who turned their weddings into a life-long love affair.

“Our wedding day was on a nice, sunny day – and it was a memorable day because I got the girl of my dreams,” said Maurice Tucker, who married his wife Gwen 76 years ago.

Despite fewer Kiwis tying the knot, and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern having a child out of wedlock, New Zealand has no shortage of love stories for those who said “I do” and stayed true.

The couples shared tips on how to maintain a successful marriage.

New Zealand’s longest married couple – Auckland’s Jeram and Ganga Ravij – say the secret to their own union is tolerance. The couple are turning 102 this year.

The second longest marriage in New Zealand is Mosgiel couple Eric and Lillian Brinsdon, both 99, who celebrated their 80th anniversary in January.
