Helmut (84) and Gisela (78) Mückley have spent almost their whole life with each other. Seperated by two streets only, they grew up in the city state of Bremen closely located to the river Weser in northwestern Germany. They still live there up to the present day. For 61 years the skilled boat builder and the domestic service manager are married, three children they have raised. "We have always helped each other" Gisela says, "we always have got along so well with each other. Helmut has been the introverted part of the two of us, me is the independent and spirited character. We have always shared our thoughts with one another, talked to each other a lot. And this is still the case today!"
However, in the present it is only Gisela who talks.
