This was reported by the press service of the regional government.
Nadezhda Fyodorovna and Nikolai Semyonovich Spiridonovs, who live in the village of Morgunovo, Guryevsky urban district, celebrated the "blessed wedding". They registered their marriage in December 1947 in the Penza region, from where five years later the young family moved to the westernmost region of Russia.
This year Nadezhda Fedorovna celebrated her 90th anniversary. Her husband is a year older.
As the heroes of the day said, they had known each other since childhood. After the Great Patriotic War, which Nikolai Semyonovich fought to Königsberg, the young met again. After the birth of their first child, they moved to the Kaliningrad region, where three more of their children were born, and over the years, eight grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren joined the large and friendly Spiridonov family.
“Graceful weddings,” as the people call the 70th anniversary of marriage, are extremely rare. This is the only case in the Kaliningrad region this year. Also, only one 65th anniversary of living together was celebrated. Two more married couples from the Kaliningrad region celebrated diamond weddings in 2017 to mark the 60th anniversary of their marriage, one - the 55th anniversary or "emerald" wedding. The half-century anniversary in the outgoing year was celebrated in our region by 17 married couples.
