Dottie and Jim Gleed, Married Couple

Naveen Mahadevan

"Christ is our center, and then it's like everything else. That's what holds you together. As long as you've got that center, there's nothing in the world that's going to tear you apart. Because you've always got that at your core."

Dottie, 76, and Jim, 78, Gleed have been married 55 years. The Gleeds met in 1955 while attending the University of Alabama. Dottie was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 16 years ago and only two years ago, Jim suffered a stroke. The couple cites the stroke as a defining point in their marriage that has only furthered their love for one another.
