She was thrown out for marrying a black man 70 years ago; now look at them today.

Jake and Mary Jacobs celebrated 70 years of a beautiful marriage this year, but they had to overcome many obstacles to get there.

Jake was one of the few black men in the city where Mary, a White woman, and Jake, a Black man, lived in 1940s Britain.

It would have been easy for Mary to leave, but she had fallen in love and would go to any length to remain with her beloved, despite her father’s orders.

“When I told my father I intended to marry Jake, he replied, ‘You will never set foot in this house again if you marry that man.’”
