Old-Fashioned And In Love: Couple Married For 40 Years Lives On A Farm And It Seems Like A Dream

Life on the farm became a paradise for this couple. Steve Green, 90, and his wife Jeanie, 67, have been married for 40 years. They have an old-fashioned life and do not use any modern luxuries such as the Internet! What seems like a must-have in a modern world does not correlate with the spouses, who are the happiest on their own land.
Steve and Jeanie live in North Yorkshire, Britain. Their rare outings include going to the closest city to buy a newspaper and a snack, however, they have never been to London.
Their modest and simple life is the reason for their happiness. They became famous when Channel 5 featured them in one of their shows, The Yorkshire Vet. Its viewers could meet the Greens and fall in love with their lifestyle and passion for work and each other.
The two of them have woken up daily at 6 am and run the routine errands every day for all these years. They used to have cows but sold them because of Steve’s health issues. Now they have calves, donkeys, cats and dogs. The couple even received an offer to sell their farm for big money, but they refused it.
Money means nothing to us. It’s all go. At our age, people ask us why don’t we retire but we never will. We’re happy because we’re together and because of our life on this farm. We’d never sell up.
The Greens were married at St Mary’s Church and had a modest honeymoon 50 miles away from their home. Since then, they didn’t travel further.
Now, as the couple has become TV personalities, they renewed their wedding vows, filming the whole event! The heartwarming words they had to say for each other are truly inspiring.
Ever since we met 40 years ago you’ve made me the happiest man in the world. You mean everything.
Jeanie had the best reply:
When I set eyes on you it was such a magical moment. I will love you forever.
The farmers grow their own food and chop wood for the fire. They still love each other, as much as on the very first day they met.
People like them are so rare in the modern world of luxury and technology that develops and evolves so fast! Time seems to have stopped at this cosy retreat, a regular British countryside that became a love nest for these two! We can’t help but admire them!
Family is the biggest treasure of all!
