"To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part."

Des has certainly taken this part of his wedding vows to Mona very seriously. The couple has been married for 56 years, and now that Mona's eyesight is deteriorating and her hands are beginning to shake, Des has stepped in to help out.

Their story even got the attention of Kim Kardashian and her makeup artist and business partner Mario Dedivanovic.
