Morice and Servilie HyppolyteMorice and Servilie have been married for sixty two years. They did not tell me their age. They were both born and raised in Marigot and have always lived there. Morice tells me that he does not like to visit Port-au- Prince. He always worked as a gardener and fisherman but has a back injury that is preventing him from working now. Morice and Servilie have children, grandchildren and extended family that help them. When I asked them what makes a marriage last for 62 years they told me “ health, love, family and the grace of God.”
