ORLANDO and Maria Mallozzi know the meaning of love.

Originally from Italy, it took them immigrating halfway across the world to Australia before the pair met in Gosnells and fell in love.

They were married on August 23, 1958 in Gosnells Parish, and will celebrate their 60th anniversary on Thursday.

After six decades of marriage, the pair have some pretty simple advice for a successful marriage.

“To be there for one another no matter what, to be faithful and honest,” Mr Mallozzi said.

“You need to love someone deeply to be together otherwise it doesn’t work – no bond, no work,” Mrs Mallozzi said.

Living in the Gosnells area ever since arriving in WA, the pair share the love with three daughters and two grandsons.
