Balancing act: Couple share values, love for 60 years

COMPROMISE and unselfishness are two virtues that have sustained the marriage of a well-known Gympie couple for six decades.

Patrick and Enid Carroll, who reside at their Caledonian Hill property, will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary on December 16.

The secret they said to a long happy marriage was not always "wanting".

"We're not argumentative. You can say we've had a few silences," Enid said jokingly.

"I can't argue with anyone, the tears come too quickly.

"We're not alike in lots of ways, but it balanced out OK."
