NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Who knows the secret to love better than those who have lived it? That was the question that Seema Akkar-Rivers asked herself when she started working as a medical technician at Brookdale Montclair Paulsbo. She was newly engaged, with the best resource for marriage advice standing in front of her every day. So, she started asking couples in the senior living community about their relationships and for any marital advice.

Enter Maggie and Art Bretsen. Their love story was one that impacted Seema in its uniqueness. The Bretsen’s, who will celebrate 70 years this March, met and fell in love through letters they wrote to each other during WWII. Seema’s relationship with her husband is also unique in that she’s the first in her family to have an intercultural marriage.

Taking a page from Seema’s book, the Brookdale team collected seven keys to love from Brookdale couples around the country:
