This is a sweet article* about the Kaufmans, the couple in the Swiffer ads. They’re real people and that’s really their house.
Both widowed, they married in their 40’s, and now in their 90’s, have been married 44 years. Their new celebrity leaves them a little bumfuzzled. They are still very much in love and readily compromise and give in to each other. “Each one at any given moment is willing to let the other one take the day,” said [Mrs. Kaufman’s daughter, age 62]. “I don’t think anyone has a vested interest in standing their ground.”They also have his-and-hers dens where each can indulge their own interests and levels of tidiness.
In my next life, I hope to have a marriage like theirs.
