What’s the trick to staying together for 50 years?

Local married couple Tina and Harold Rowledge certainly know, having celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary at Lake Cowichan Christian Fellowship Church luncheon, Sunday, February 20.

“Forgive one another,” Harold said, pausing for a second. “Quickly.”

“So you can sleep at night,” Tina added.

During the church’s luncheon celebration of the Rowledge couple, pastor Terry Hale, alongside many others, congratulated the pair on staying together, in a time when divorce rates are skyrocketing.

“Thank you for being a great model,” he said. “Congratulations on 50 years.”

Friends from past and present shared stories about the couple, highlighting their years in Port Hardy, Fort St. John, and elsewhere around the province.

The two moved to Lake Cowichan in 2001, where Harold started work as the church’s seniors pastor.

The couple has three girls, and one great-grandchild.
