Husband Sends Wife The Same Card For 40 Years

A devoted husband is celebrating St Valentine’s Day by sending his beloved wife the same card he has handed her for the last 40 years.

Ken Myers, a self-confessed romantic, began his unique way of saying ‘I love you’ back in 1979, six years after he married his sweetheart, Valerie.

The 78-year-old novelist writes a new message inside the card every year – which is now full of little love notes from the past four decades.

And Ken, of Leeds, West Yorkshire, even created the romantic card himself – he used to work as a card designer back in the 1970s.

He said: ‘I worked in the industry for around ten years and designed hundreds of cards, for big companies like Hallmark.

‘I sent the card to Valerie in 1979, and then again in 1980. After that, I just carried on because it was a novelty.

‘I like to think I’m a romantic husband. I am a member of the Romantic Novelists Association, so I’m a qualified romantic.

Mr Myers even writes inside the card to show the years which he has handed it to his wife

‘I think Valerie would be disappointed if I came back one year with a different card. It’s become a family heirloom.’
