According to John, the couple has made the old adage "never go to bed angry" their relationship motto. All bickering and fighting gets resolved before they call it a night—and good sleep hygiene isn't the only thing keeping their marriage on the upswing.
Apart from keeping the number of arguments to a minimum, the couple leads an active lifestyle that revolves around moderation. The Hendersons enjoys nutritious foods (think: fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean proteins) and drink very little alcohol. John still makes a habit of going to the gym regularly. And another factor may have contributed to their long marriage: The couple never had children. "[S]o some people have said that’s really why we’ve lived so long," he says. Make of that what you will.
While their marriage has lasted 80 years, John and Charlotte have been together for 85—"It took her five years to make up her mind that she wanted to get married,” he says—so don't rush into it.
