Two Syracuse couples share their respective stories of what keeps a relationship working for Valentine's Day.
The love that Lydia and Earl Smith share spans 75 years.
The couple first met in Waterville, N.Y. when Lydia was 15 years old and Earl was 19. After two years of dating, Earl proposed to Lydia in a letter. The young couple were married on Nov. 9, 1943.

Earl often refers to Lydia as “my love,” and the couple are always seen holding hands around the James Square Health & Rehabilitation Centre in Syracuse.

It's like we are constantly living in one of those "expectation vs reality" memes.
