CINCINNATI (AP) — A southwestern Ohio couple celebrating their 75th wedding anniversary this month say the secret to their happy relationship is never going to bed angry.

Ormond and Thelma Elam of Liberty Township have shared their lives during the Great Depression, World War II and the death of one of their three children.

The pair met in Mount Sterling in Kentucky while Thelma was working in her family's garden and Ormond was grooming his horse.

Thelma is now 93, and Ormond is 92. They say they never go to bed angry.

After three-quarters of a century together, the pair have nine grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.

Their daughter, 66-year-old Sharon, tells The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/12yR2fh) that her parents have "set the high standard by which all five generations strive to live."
