A couple 'made for each other' 

CAMDEN couple Enid and Peter Muller will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on Saturday.

They first met at a swimming hole along Heathcote Road when Peter, an apprentice upholsterer, went to the aid of a young nurse named Enid Townsend when her motor scooter wouldn't start.

Peter clutch-started her scooter and took Enid out for a milkshake at Cronulla.

On June 29, 1963, the couple, both aged 20, were married at St Clement's Church in Marrickville, where they were featured in the local paper.

For the first 17 years of their married life, Enid and Peter lived on acres at Austral, where they raised three children — Robert, Linda and James.

Enid and Peter then moved to Oakdale where they entertained their five grandchildren — Laura, David, Stephanie, Matthew and Guy — with stories and adventures in the bush behind their house.

For the past 10 years, Enid and Peter have lived in Camden and are active members of the community.

Peter volunteers regularly at Lifeline Narellan and Enid is part of the Camden Senior Citizens and Macarthur Singers.

Enid and Peter, now both 70, are still exploring the world. They have travelled to Europe, Africa, the US, Asia and many Pacific islands.

Recently, the couple went on a cruise to Tahiti and are going to Darwin and Kakadu in July as an anniversary present from their daughter, Linda.

And the romance hasn't faded — after 50 years of marriage: Peter doesn't hesitate to open the door for Enid, and she admits his charm is still hard to resist.

Enid says that they were "made for each other".

Every year for their anniversary, Peter gives Enid a wedding cake decorated with a different message of love.

This is a tradition he intends to continue for their Golden Anniversary and beyond.
