Tunku Dara Naquiah & Tunku Datuk Mudzaffar
Milestone: 50 Years of Marriage
There’s something attractive about a woman that is modern, independent and confident; and these were the qualities that drew Tunku Datuk Mudzaffar to his wife, Tunku Dara Naquiah. In fact, his admiration for her is still strong today, judging by how he looks at her—50 years after they became husband and wife.
At the living room of their abode amid the many family photos of the couple, their children as well as their grandchildren, we were able to grasp the timeline of their loving, long-standing relationship.
Their contrasting personalities make for a harmonious pairing, strengthened by a mutual understanding. “Sometimes he likes to be on his own, and be quiet. But he doesn’t mind me socialising with friends. What I like about him is that he is very calm and reserved, but he is also very determined,” says Tunku Dara.
Sometimes when he can’t attend a function and I have to go alone, I’ll miss him when I’m on the dance floor with other friends.— Tunku Dara Tunku Tan Sri Naquiah
