After 65 years together, Norman and Sylvia Dixon feel more like one person than two.

The couple, aged 86 and 82 respectively, celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary with friends at Glenfalloch in Dunedin yesterday before the official milestone is marked today.

The couple married at the Roslyn Baptist Church and it was there they had met each other, Mrs Dixon (nee Seymour) said.

Having a similar mind-set and the same life goals had seen them last so long together, she said.

''I feel as if I couldn't live without him.

''We help each other so much. After all this time, you just about become one.''

The couple had four children - Rod, Mark, Grant and Angela - 15 grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
